British Journal of Photography fought stiff competition from prestigious magazines such as FOAM, Aperture, Zoom and the Nueva Luz Photographic Journal to win Photography Magazine of the Year at the 10th annual Lucie Awards.
Held at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles, home of the Golden Globe Awards, the Lucies honour the greatest achievements in photography, presenting awards in categories ranging from Achievement in Fine Art, Sports and Documentary, to Achievement in Book Publishing.
The award for Photography Magazine of the Year was presented by Jean Ferro, president of Women in Photography International. Photographer Alinka Echeverria accepted the award on behalf of British Journal of Photography.
"This is the cherry on the cake after a remarkable 36 months in which we turned the magazine around, relaunching it as a beautifully designed monthly and then introducing our award-winning iPad app, and now our app for the iPhone," says BJP's editor Simon Bainbridge.
He adds: "I’m really proud of what our small team has achieved – innovating our way through these hard times – and it’s great that we’ve been recognised for that, especially as this award comes from our peers."
BJP was established on 14 January 1854 as the Liverpool Photographic Journal. In 1860, it was rebranded as the British Journal of Photography and over the decades BJP has become a journal of record, publishing the work of thousands of photographers, as well as prestigious writers such as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in 1882.
In March 2010, after more than 150 years as a weekly magazine, BJP was completely redesigned and relaunched as a high-quality monthly publication. A year later, BJP released its dedicated iPad app, which went on to win a coveted title at the 2012 British Media Awards.
