The Monthly takes out top current affairs award second year running

The Monthly was named winner of the Business, Finance & Current affairs category for the second consecutive year at the 2012 Australian Magazine Awards ceremony in Sydney. The Monthly was up against big players BRW, Money Magazine and AFR Smart Investor for the award.

This award caps off a strong year of print and digital growth for the Monthly, as well as giving editor John van Tiggelen a gong in his first year in the job.

John van Tiggelen says, “This is vindication for our belief in strong journalism and great writing. Despite the travails of print media, the Monthly shows that readers still want quality.”

The Monthly was also a finalist for Magazine of the Year, alongside Frankie, Donna Hay magazine and INTHEBLACK.

The awards recognise the nation’s top magazine publishers by independently assessing and rewarding excellence in the constantly changing media environment.

Readership increased 9% for the Monthly in a year when readership of magazines as a whole declined by 1.4%. Its audited circulation also rose 4%.
