Doctor Who Magazine and their publishers Panini UK have won the ACE award for Circulation Excellence by a Monthly Magazine at an awards ceremony on 27 March 2014.
The Association of Circulation Executives gave the award following DWM's record-breaking circulation figures, announced earlier this year by the ABC.
Tom Spilsbury, Editor of Doctor Who Magazine, commented: "It's fantastic to see such love and support for Doctor Who Magazine, especially in the show's 50th anniversary year – with the magazine itself now 35 years old. Like the Doctor himself, DWM is always excited to go to new places and to discover new technology – and through our growing international distribution and our brand new digital edition, we've been able to reach more readers than ever before. With a new Doctor making his début in 2014, there are exciting times ahead for Doctor Who – and DWM will be there every step of the journey."
Circulation Manager, Katie Wilkinson says “The 50th anniversary last year presented a fantastic opportunity to grow sales and extend reach to bring in new readers and expand onto new platforms. Through product innovation, marketing at trade, in print, at events and increasingly via social media DWM was able to successfully achieve circulation excellence throughout 2013. This award recognises this achievement and we are really proud of the win.”
