Mick Taylor named editor of the year


Guitarist editor scoops publishing excellence award

Mick Taylor, editor of Guitarist magazine has been named Editor of the Year at publisher Future’s annual internal awards ceremony held in Bath.

The company’s magazine reported: “Mick’s vision, passion, dedication and craft make every issue of Guitarist a pleasure to read. Delivering the highest ever selling issue, more subscribers, enviable efficiencies and overall ABC growth, Mick has taken one of Future’s key titles to its greatest heights this year. His enthusiasm and expertise has energised the whole team, and his ability to deliver spot-on ‘banker’ issues leading with stars like Eric Clapton, while also reaching out to new readers with calculated creative risks such as covers on John Mayer and Seasick Steve underpin Guitarist’s recent impressive and sustained growth.”

Mick first started work at Guitarist as production assistant in 1997. Following stints on Metal Hammer and Mountain Biking UK, he edited Guitar Buyer and returned to Guitarist as editor in February 2007.

“Being editor of Guitarist was always my dream job,” he commented, “so to get this recognition, moreover to have the pleasure of working with such an incredible team, is a massive honour.”

Future Publishing’s Excellence Awards is the company’s annual celebration of its best work during the year. Guitarist was also shortlisted for Future’s magazine of the year 2008, though the top spot went to photography launch Photo Plus.
