D-Photo is proud to announce, for the second year in a row, the publication has scooped a top award at New Zealand’s annual competition for magazine cover of the year. After being picked as a category finalist in The Maggies awards by a panel of experts, the cover of D-Photo 59 was chosen as this year’s top cover in the Specialist category by public vote.
The stunning cover image was created by award-winning portrait photographer Bianca Duimel, who contributed to that issue’s well-received feature on techniques for taking beautiful photos of babies and children.
The Maggies organisers report over 15,000 votes cast during the month of open public voting. The organisation was also able to raise over $1800 for children’s charity Barnardos New Zealand, donating $1 from every subscription purchased with the complimentary $5 iSubscrible voucher gifted to those who voted in the awards.
D-Photo would like to extend sincere thanks to all of those who voted for the cover, it’s an honour to have New Zealand photography represented so prominently in the publishing industry.
