"Dear LCA, My spam filter is not as efficient as it could be in eliminating nonsense from my inbox, so my heart sank when your email slipped through. Surprisingly, it was very good. Well designed, informative, well edited, and above all useful. That has not happened for a while."

Every good editor will tell you the readers know best. So the comments from one anonymous councillor about our monthly e-magazine remain a source of much pride and jubilation at LCA. And now LDN – London in Short has been named the best agency blog, editorial or comms platform in the 2016 Sabre awards which recognise insight and innovation across Europe. You could argue this is reason enough to Vote Stay in the Brexit referendum so we can defend our title next year. But that may be taking things a step too far.

For those of you who are not avid readers (and why aren't you?!) every edition covers the top stories from the month in politics, development, transport, health and culture. On top of that we throw in plenty of LCA's expert insight and lots of original infographics. We've recently produced a comprehensive guide to Housing Zones, a monthly analysis of the Mayoral election campaign and a guide to Crossrail 2. Plus there's always an exclusive tongue-in-cheek take on the headlines from Guardian cartoonist Martin Rowson. He has produced more than 200 original cartoons for us to date. And all of this can be yours for the low, low price of...absolutely nothing at all. It's free, you just need to sign up here.

The truth is we love producing LDN; it is labour intensive but in return we get to sharpen our news sense, and challenge ourselves to identify and unravel the issues that matter most to clients, readers and to London.

If you are an LDN reader please do let us know what you think via ldn@londoncommunications.co.uk and if you're not please do sign up today. Our next edition will feature our full analysis of the Mayoral and London Assembly election results as well as much much more.
