The digital version of Tullow World has been named as a finalist in the ‘Best digital magazine or newsletter’ category at the #insidestory awards 2015 from CIPR Inside, the internal communication sector group of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations.
The app, which operates on iOS and desktops, was introduced by the FTSE 100 exploration company to complement its online channels and print magazine, Tullow World, which is also written and designed by Headlines.
Head of Creative at Headlines Mark Newnham said: “The Tullow World magazine app transforms the print issue into a fully immersive digital experience.

Although Africa-focused, employees are based as far afield as Norway, Guyana and South Africa – often in extremely remote locations.
As a company that is growing quickly, Tullow values its small company feel and ranks employee engagement and keeping its people connected as a top priority.
The company invests in a broad communication strategy including the creation of collateral and channels including a quality print magazine, Tullow World, which won Best Quarterly Feature Magazine at the 2014 IoIC Awards.
Headlines transformed the magazine into a multi-media experience with the app, which provides an interactive digital edition offering video, audio, animated infographics and extended image galleries.
