We are delighted to announce that our print product – the SportAccord magazine - has been shortlisted for the British Media Awards 2013.

The SportAccord magazine – produced annually and specifically for distribution at the SportAccord International Convention – joins some of the best-known names of British media in the Print Product of the Year category.
