This year's winners will give a glimpse into the future of digital media.”
Gavin Drake, Quark's Vice President of Marketing said: “As a company that is focused on providing leading tools for digital design and publishing, it's fantastic to be able to support an area that is evolving so rapidly and to see the continued innovation since last year's inaugural Digital Magazine Awards.
