We are delighted to announce that in its first year Bloomsbury Fashion Central has been awarded Platform of the Year in the Reference/Education category at The Bookseller FutureBook Awards!
It was a double victory for Bloomsbury’s Academic & Professional Division, that also saw Global Head of Academic Publishing Jenny Ridout win the award for Digital Achiever of the Year.
Judge George Burgess said of the Bloomsbury win: “We were really impressed with the breadth of Bloomsbury's fashion resources, in particular the various media types that ranged from videos to quizzes and flashcards. The user experience was impressive for an educational product, and it has been well thought out from both the student and the instructor's perspective.”
