Author: AnonymousSometimes I find these PR categories difficult to differentiate between a hefty marketing campaign and solid PR, but I think it's fair to say that these should have a decent shout: PR Campaign For A Live Event: Reading & Leeds Festivals PR Campaign For A Breakthrough Act: Haim PR Campaign For An Established Act: Daft Punk PR Campaign For A Reissue: Fleetwood Mac Away from those, If NME keeps up the strength of issue 1, then Mike Williams should comfortably get Editor of the Year for reshaping the magazine into something potentially very exciting indeed.

Record of the Day Awards 2013 for Music Journalism and PR

Author: AnonymousAhead of our Music Journalism & PR awards at the end of November, we are looking to review the categories. It's not practical to present more awards on the night, but if needed we could announce a few in the magazine only. However, what we really want to hear from you is whether the existing categories are fit for purpose, or need to adapt. We aim to produce shorter longlists than we have previously, and open them up for input before voting goes live.
