Shortlist chairman Mike Soutar has been named as the very first inductee to the PPA Scotland Hall of Fame.
The honour was bestowed at the annual PPA Scottish Magazine Awards, the premier celebration of talent within the Scottish magazine industry, in the EICC in Edinburgh on Thursday 23rd November.
PPA Scotland chair, and editor of The Big Issue, Paul McNamee said, “The PPA Scotland Hall of Fame allows us to recognise individuals who have really moved the dial in a significant way, having a huge impact on the magazine industry. We will recognise people who have come out of Scotland and gone on to have an impact on the world.”
Presenting the award to Soutar, to whom he gave his first journalism job in London, PPA CEO Barry McIheney said: “It is impossible to think of anyone else who could be a more fitting debutant member of the PPA Scotland Hall of Fame.”
