Holocaust gaffe publisher up for award

An unfortunate coincidence for easyJet on the day 300,000 magazines are pulped

Guest post by Stephen Morris

With the dust barely settled on the Holocaust Memorial fashion shoot affair — a story I broke last Friday — the publisher of easyJet’s in-flight magazine finds itself back in the spotlight.

Ink is shortlisted at the Association of Publishing Agencies’ (APA) annual international publishing awards tonight in London. It is billed as “the biggest most lavish customer publishing awards event to date”.

Now, we should stress that the award that the publisher could win is for “illustration”, not photography — certainly not fashion photography — and entries had to be in by the beginning of September. But we suspect both Ink and easyJet could have done with lying low for a while. Especially on the day the red-faced airline followed through on its promise to pulp all 300,000 copies of easyJet Inflight.
