Kim Scott Walwyn Prize to Nature

The Guardian reports that the Kim Scott Walwyn prize, set up in 2004 to celebrate outstanding achievements by women in publishing, has been awarded to the head of the Nature Publishing Group, Annette Thomas. Thomas beat Rebecca Carter, editor-at-large at Random House, and Oxford University Press‘s head of marketing, Susanna Lob, to take the 3,000 pound prize. It honors a career that includes 14 years at Nature Publishing Group, where Thomas rose from the role of assistant editor to her current position as managing director, and her appointment in 2000 to an executive director’s position at Macmillan Publishers.
