Bruce Hudson, Digital Magazine Awards' Chairman, said, “It is clear digital magazines now cross over traditional publishing skills with all forms of interactive media combining sensational content, ingenious design, incredible photography, film and videography, superb use of sound and with many challenging the definition of what a magazine actually is. This year's winners will give a glimpse into the future of digital media.”
Gavin Drake, Quark's Vice President of Marketing, said, “As a company focused on providing leading tools for digital design and publishing, it's fantastic to be able to support an area that is evolving so rapidly and to see the continued innovation since last year's inaugural Digital Magazine Awards.
