The Stack Awards 2017

Last Monday night, Hubbie, his senior designer and I were queuing at Queen of Hoxton on Curtain Road. We were invited to the Stack Awards 2017 because one of Hubbie’s work was shortlisted for one of the awards.

How long do we have to wait before being admitted? It looked like the organiser was making sure only the people who were on the guest list would be allowed to enter and the registration was taking a loooong time…

The venue, Queen of Hoxton, was approximately 7-8 minutes walk from Old Street tube station.

A mirror ball!

A DJ was spinning retro boogies and girls with trays laden with mini-burgers, halloumi kebabs and cute avocado wraps were shimmying through the guests. The foods were very moreish and they were plentiful.

There were some print samples done by the printer across the pond…

Park Press Printers, based in Northeastern United States.

We chatted with other guests while the organisers prepared the basement for an award giving ceremony…

Shame that the do was not on Friday. If so I would have drunk more…

The Stack Awards was an annual award given to noteworthy independent magazines by Stack Magazines. And the competition was international, therefore, the entries were global…

The result? Hubbie won a commendation amongst 22 shortlists! Well done, you!!

His magazine, Pan and the Dream was a collaboration between him and a fashion designer who resided in NYC. I saw him toiling and burning the midnight oil for months before the magazine went to press. It was a damn hard work and I was very happy that he was rewarded for his effort.

There is a review done by Creative Review here. Take a look if you are interested…
