CALM are thrilled to announce that our magazine, CALMzine, won Publication of the Year at the Public Sector Communications Awards 2013 in Manchester last night!
CALMzine has gone through a number of incarnations over the years, but the one thing that has remained constant is the incredible skill and generosity of our pool of voluntary writers, who have consistently delivered pertinent, entertaining and brave articles with the aim of opening up conversations amongst young guys about mental health and the importance of talking about their problems. We cannot underestimate the power your writing has on the readers who need it most.
Featuring the likes of Scroobius Pip, Gaz Coombes, Danny Dyer and Stephen Merchant over the past year, CALMzine keeps going from strength to strength, with this award being the icing on the cake.
HUGE thanks go to all the writers, the regular columnists (Mister Mumbles, Joshua Idehen, Chris Owen, Dan Jones, Oh Standfast, Matt Brown & Chris Sav), all the brilliant cover artists, our designers Joey Graham and Silvina De Vita, our team of volunteers who distribute it on the streets of London led by the fabulous Katie Barton, Topman who carry it in all their London stores, Jamie Scahill & Martin Cordiner, without whom the magazine wouldn’t exist, and finally to our amazing readers who make it all worthwhile.
The next issue, featuring none other that Frank Turner, is out Nov 25th. Check it out!!
