Amateur Photographer (AP) magazine is giving away 125 free prints – among other goodies – as part of its 125th anniversary celebrations.

AP – first launched in 1884 – celebrates its 125th anniversary in next week’s issue, dated 10 October.

AP has secured some great birthday presents for its readers.

Inside the bag containing the DVD, there will be a voucher featuring a unique code to claim 125 free prints from

BluBox is giving every reader a free downloadable version of its compression software, worth £9.99.

And, as if that wasn’t enough, Leica is currently producing a stunning black leather, chrome-plated one-off Leica M9 which will be engraved with ‘Amateur Photographer 125th Anniversary 1884-2009’. It will come with a Leica 35mm f/2 Summicron-M Asph in a kit worth a total of £6,765.

For readers to be in with a chance of winning this ‘money-can’t-buy’ piece of history – and to claim all the other presents in the AP anniversary collectors issue – they should make sure to order a copy now, as it is anticipated to sell out very quickly.

Then, be sure to claim the 125 free prints, free software and the free dvd.
