What do you do when all else fails? Try something new. That’s exactly what Metal Hammer magazine did at the start of last year. Relaunched and reconfigured following a tough 12 months, this long-standing title found new ways to win thanks to the courage, vision and talent of the team. They have achieved tremendous results, setting records on My Favourite Magazines in the process. Because of this, it’s with great pleasure that the award for best magazine this year goes to arguably our most innovative: Metal Hammer!
