We have five nominations
for the Publishing Prize 2019

We have five nominations for the Publishing Prize 2019. Our own web site BizStories, three corporate books and SF Studio’s jubilee site are on the fine list. Winners will be announced on 5 November.

The Publishing Prize was founded in 1990 and is an annual jury-based competition for “laudable editorial communication and market communication”. The jury consists of professionally active communicators, such as photographers, graphical designers, film producers, journalists and editors.

We look forward to the award ceremony at historical restaurant and theater venue Berns in Stockholm! By the way, Berns’ historical archive is kept with us at the Centre for Business History.
