Future, the international media group based in Bath, emerged a big winner at yesterday’s hotly-contested Digital Magazine Awards, receiving four major accolades.

Edge was named Specialist Magazine of the Year, Computer Arts won Visual Magazine of the Year, Jamie Magazine, produced using the FutureFolio app creation solution, was crowned Launch of the Year (New Format) and Edge’s Phil Haycraft was named Designer of the Year.

The highly-coveted Digital Magazine Awards celebrate the world’s best magazines, individuals and advertisers from the digital publishing industry.

Future’s success adds to its growing tally of awards this year. The firm has been named Consumer Digital Publisher of the Year for three years in a row by the Association of Online Publishers (2011, 2012, 2013) and is currently the Professional Publishers Association Digital Publisher of the Year and the British Media Awards Media Company of the Year.

The Jamie Magazine app, powered by Folio, recently won a 2013 Lovie, as well as being named in Apple’s Apps of 2012, and the FutureFolio team was commended at this year’s PPA Awards in the Development Team of the Year category.

Future CEO Mark Wood said: “These awards are hotly contested and it is a real achievement for Future to walk away with four of the top honours and six commendations. This achievement underlines Future’s leading position in the digital tablet magazine market as we continue to transition from print to a digitally focussed business. These stunning products are a wonderful showcase for Future's creative skills.”
