Page Lizard were proud to support the annual PPA Awards, celebrating world-class talent in the magazine media industry.
Last night, we donned our ballgowns and bow ties and headed into London for an evening of glitz, glamour and publishing excellence! This prestigious event has been running for 35 years, and hosts the much-anticipated Cover of the Year award.
Last week, we hosted a Tech Talk at the PPA to discuss the facts and implications of Apple News with publishers.
After presenting what facts we had gathered about Apple News and other media publishing channels like Facebook and Flipboard, we opened the discussion up to publishers to talk about their views on what this could mean for them.
Page Lizard attended the PPA's Independent Publisher conference and awards last Friday. This event celebrated the achievements of independent publishers, and we were proud to be supporters of the vital contributions these publishers make.
This year's event was completely sold out. We managed to bag ourselves some great seats (right at the back) for the awards, and watched as the winners rolled up and over the stage all afternoon long. There were some great snaps taken throughout the day which you can see in the gallery below, or on the PPA's live photo stream.
As the nights draw in, most of us would rather be at home snuggled up with a glass of mulled wine and the latest episode of The Apprentice. What could tempt you out of those comfy Fair Isle jumpers more than a good Digital Publishing event? Here are our pick of the top 8 unmissable events this winter.
Last week we hosted a tech talk at the Publishers Association (PPA) in London on the subject of "HTML apps, the way forward". I originally had a question mark in the title, but was told by the other participants Michael Kowalski, Founder of Contentment, the developer behind the Padify platform and Clare Evans, a Front End Developer at Kaldor who produce the PugPig platform to take it out. There is no question that HTML apps ARE the way forward, it seems.
