The Digital Magazine Awards, one of the world’s largest awards for digital media and publishing, have announced their 2014 finalists, and WatchTime has been nominated in four categories: specialist magazine of the year, magazine website of the year, men’s lifestyle magazine of the year, and publisher of the year. Together with last year’s nominations WatchTime now has been nominated an unprecedented seven times as a finalist at the Digital Magazine Awards. WatchTime is the world’s first watch magazine with seven nominations and joins a very small prestigious set of media brands who have been nominated seven times or more since the Digital Magazine Awards were founded. WatchTime has won more than 14 global awards and nominations since 2012, more than any other American watch magazine or website. The juries honored WatchTime’s rapid digital growth, excellence in digital publishing, event management and innovation.
‘We’re very proud of our team’, notes WatchTime’s editor-in-chief, Joe Thompson, ‘their ideas and their work allow us to publish one of the world’s leading watch magazines’. Adds Dominik Grau, WatchTime’s publisher, ‘it is an honor to work with such a successful team of watch journalists. Joe Thompson and our founding publisher, Wolfgang Blum, lay the groundwork for everything we do today. It is the success in print that has allowed us to be successful in the digital universe. WatchTime has become one of the world’s largest and fastest-growing digital watch media platforms, while our print magazine continues to be the market leader in all categories’.
