Editor Chris George collected the award in front of an audience of luminaries from the imaging industry. It is the first time any Future photography title has won the award, and completes a remarkable first year for the title which launched in November 2011. N-Photo bagged the top award ahead of sister title, Future’s Digital Camera, and IPC’s Amateur Photographer.
It brings N-Photo’s awards tally to three this year: in April 2012 it won two British Media Awards for ‘Social Media and Marketing Innovation’ and ‘Consumer Magazine Innovator of the Year’, beating shortlisted rivals including Cosmopolitan, The Economist, Good Food, and The Huffington Post.
Its Pre-launch Email Campaign has also been shortlisted in November’s PPA Customer Direct 2012 Awards.
Editor, Chris George, says: “We’ve been overwhelmed by the reaction to N-Photo since its launch. From setting subscription records at Future to winning awards for social media and innovation, it’s been an incredible first year. Being crowned Consumer Magazine of the Year by an industry magazine that’s been published for 23 years, is the icing on the cake for us.”
Group Publisher, Matt Pierce, says: “Huge congratulations are due to Chris and his team who have done a remarkable job. By delivering high-quality, specialist, rich editorial content across all channels and marketing it smartly, N-Photo has delivered significant audience growth on Tablet, online and in print. It’s a real success story for international, multi-platform publishing. In September 2012, N-Photo was Future’s second most profitable UK iPad edition. We’ll also very shortly be celebrating the N-Photo Facebook audience hitting 50,000 Likes, making it the biggest Facebook page of any enthusiast photography magazine in the world.”
