AJ named Magazine of the Year

The AJ has been named the International Building Press’ weekly Magazine of the Year, for the second time in three years

AJ acting editor Rory Olcayto collected the accolade, sponsored by Marley Eternit, at an awards dinner held at London’s Four Seasons Hotel last night (27 November).

The judges described the magazine as ‘good looking, authoritative [and] campaigning with a modern, open feel’.

The jury added: ‘It isn’t afraid to challenge authority…. The magazine is stylish, feels good to handle and it is a good read.’

The AJ, which won the title for the first time in 2012, was shortlisted in the category against Building and Inside Housing.

Meanwhile Richard Waite, picked up the news reporter of the year award.

  • I have taken the Architects Journal since I was a student in 1944. I got my first job as a Junior Assistant in an Architects office in 1945 as a result of a student free advertisement in the AJ. Over the years consistently a great magazine covering all as aspects of architecture, architectural practice and the profession. This award confirms what has been its consistency over the years.
