Amateur Photographer (AP) magazine picked up Consumer Magazine of the Year, for the second time, at a glitzy ceremony held in central London on Friday night.

UK retailers and manufacturers voted for AP above many other publications in the annual awards hosted by weekly photographic trade magazine Pixel.

AP Editor Damien Demolder (pictured) said afterwards: ?This award underlines the standing of AP within the trade and how these business people regard the magazine in comparison to the many others we compete with every week.

?The award endorses our content, our style and our emphasis, the way we approach news, as well as the way the magazine looks, its factual accuracy and use of language.’
