The award follows the record breaking figure from the Audit Bureau of Circulations which showed that the magazine, published by Panini, had a total average net circulation of 36,151 per issue, up 14.1 per cent on the previous six months.
The award was presented at the 2014 ACE Press Awards held at the Museum of London on 27th March 2014.
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.Tom Spilsbury, Editor of Doctor Who Magazine, commented on the ACE AWARD
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.
