Two more categories—the Nielsen Innovation of the Year and the IPG Diversity Award —have no shortlists this year, though winners for both prizes will also be presented at the Gala Dinner. A final company award—for the overall IPG Independent Publisher of the Year—will also be named, from a shortlist made up of the winners of the five Publisher of the Year categories.
All IPG Independent Publishing Awards winners will be revealed at a gala dinner on Thursday 8th March 2012. The event will take place at the 50th Annual Conference of the IPG, to be held at Heythrop Park in Oxfordshire from 7th March to 9th March.
