Digital Photographer magazine is celebrating circulation growth despite tough market conditions for 2010. The Audit Bureau of Circulation (ABC), the body, which audits magazine circulations, has announced Digital Photographer’s average circulation now stands at an average of 20,645 per issue.
The leading photographic title from Imagine Publishing has managed to maintain strong and steady sales, with a circulation increase of 2.8% for its print sales – one of only two magazines to show a rise in ABC – against an overall market drop of 4%. This figure does not yet include sales of the Digital Photographer digital editions for the iPad, predicted to be strong since their launch in early 2010.
Editor Rosie Tanner commented, “We’d like to thank our readers for their continued loyalty and support. There’s no doubt it has been a challenging year on the newsstand, with photography being an extremely saturated market to be part of, but the latest ABC figures prove Digital Photographer remains strong and well received. We’re very proud of that.”
As well as the strong circulation figures, the Digital Photographer brand looks set for further success this year, with the growing popularity of its digital versions, an exciting website redesign and huge popularity of companion bookazines and eMags.
“Photography enthusiasts have never had it so good, with such a wide range of resources available to them to help improve their skills. Digital Photographer offers readers fantastic features, tutorials and advice, not to mention a free CD packed with Photoshop video tutorials every issue,” said Tanner.
