The Stack Awards 2015 is our attempt to recognise the best work done by independent magazines this year, and we’re tweaking things as we go to make sure they work as well as possible for independent publishers.

Best use of photography
We’d initially decided that this award should be based on the work of just one photographer, but as we’ve spoken to publishers over the last couple of weeks we’ve realised that it makes more sense to have the judges consider photography throughout an entire issue of a magazine.

So while we’re still looking for pictures that make a reader stop and stare, the judges will now be considering the overall use of photography throughout a whole issue. Both our judges are seasoned experts, one from the world of photography and one from magazines, and I’m really looking forward to seeing which magazines they pick out.

Clare Grafik
The head of exhibitions at The Photographers’ Gallery, Clare has worked at the ICA, Whitechapel Gallery, Hayward Gallery and National Portrait Gallery. She has lectured at institutions including Birkbeck College, University of the Arts and Sotheby’s Institute of Art.

Ben Hillwood Harris
The owner of Artwords, the London bookshop specialising in publications on the visual arts, media and culture, Ben has been involved in books and publishing since the 1990s, previously managing the Serpentine Gallery’s book sales and publications.

We’ll be creating our shortlist of magazines on 9 October and sending them to Clare and Ben, so if you’d like to be considered, get your entry in asap. The Stack Awards is open to all independent publishers and we want to make sure we include magazines from far and wide.
