Dezeen’s editor Tom Ravenscroft has been shortlisted for a trio of British Society of Magazine Editors Awards, while its co-CEOs Benedict Hobson and Wai Shin Li are nominated for a Media Week award.

Ravenscroft has been shortlisted in three categories at this year’s British Society of Magazine Editors (BSME) awards.

He is in the running against publications including Wired, Which? and Science Focus to win Editor of the Year in the independent, specialist and business-to-business (B2B) categories.

Dezeen’s co-CEOs, Hobson and Li, are also in the running to win an award after being nominated in the Media Leader of the Year category at the Media Week Awards. They are up against executives at companies including The Independent newspaper and Starcom media agency.

The four nominations come in a successful year for Dezeen, which has already seen its editorial team named Team of the Year at the Professional Publishers Association’s annual awards.

“Dezeen’s editorial team produces highly creative content, displays superb teamwork and in the face of the most trying of circumstances pulled together to produce record-breaking traffic and revenue growth,” said the judges at the time.

Earlier this year, Ravenscroft was also named Editor of the Year at the Association of Online Publishers’ annual awards ceremony.

“Tom was the standout visionary in this category and it’s clear that he’s been able to use that strong vision to energise his team during a potentially difficult and challenging time for the business,” said the AOP judges.

At last year’s BSME Awards, Dezeen founder Marcus Fairs was posthumously honoured with a lifetime achievement award for his “massive contribution to magazine journalism” following his death in June 2022.

Dezeen has won several times at the BSME Awards and its sister programme the BSME Talent Awards in the past. Dezeen Studio was named best video team at BSME Talent Awards 2021, while Fairs was named specialist editor of the year and independent editor of the year in 2021.
