The high standard of entries submitted in the Best Supplements award reflect a passion by each of the teams that have collaborated to produce the outstanding products to be judged, many of which can hold their heads high amongst their contemporaries in both larger regional and metropolitan regions.

What impressed me most with the best of the supplements, was the obvious co-operation between the advertising, editorial and creative teams with a single purpose; to create a product that engaged readers and delivered strong value for advertisers.

The other vital aspect of the products was the clear community engagement exhibited by the depth and breadth of LOCAL content and commercial support.

Well done to you all – you and your communities are all winners.

Unfortunately I can only choose three entries for the podium positions.

Third place - Yorke Peninsula Field Days Official Souvenir Guide

Yorke Peninsula Country Times

The Field Days supplement was an impressive guideide to a significant local event, more than ably undertaken by the staff of the Country Times.

Second place - River Time     

The Murray Pioneer

Not just another Tourist magazine; obvious careful attention to design, editorial and advertising content and overall execution

The winner - The Barossa Mag

The Leader

Advertising content in both creative and revenue terms and the excellent layout and design were award worthy. One of things that set this publication apart was the storytelling in words and pictures of local people and businesses.
