By Richard Wilson

Boots and Spurs magazine won Cover of the Decade at the tenth anniversary of the 2012 Scottish Magazine Awards last week.

The title won the one-off category prize following a public vote, after judges had drawn up a shortlist of 12 covers from 262 entries.

The Times Educational Supplement Scotland was named Magazine of the Year as well as winning the business and professional magazine of the year, and the publishing star and sales performance of the year awards. 

DC Thomson, which recently announced it was to end producing print copies of the children’s comic The Dandy, collected three awards on the night.

The awards, organised by the Professional Publishers Association, was held at the Radisson BLU Hotel in Glasgow.

PPA Scotland business manager, Kathy Crawford Hay said: "We’re delighted to see so much talent and achievement recognised this evening.
