The compact Independent continues to collect accolades with four awards from the Association of Circulation Executives.
ACE honours included the gold award for circulation excellence and endeavour by a national paper and the gold award for a team that has shown outstanding circulation innovation.
The Indy also scooped silver awards for the most effective promotional campaign and for service and communication to retailers by a newspaper.
The judges praised the Indy’s move to a compact format: “The Independent was the paper to have the courage to move first. It has seen significant sales growth.”
