The Week was named Consumer Magazine of the Year while its chief executive, Kerin O’Connor, was awarded Publisher/Manager of the Year.

O’Connor said: "It's terrific to see The Week being recognised at the PPA Awards. We're very proud of the magazine's achievements over the years and with our successful digital launches last year we've entered a new stage in its development."

Stylist won Consumer Media Brand of the Year while its editor Lisa Smosarski was named Editor of the Year.

T3 was awarded International Consumer Magazine of the Year in addition to its digital prize.

Front Cover of the Year, which was voted on by the public, was awarded to UTV Media’s Sport magazine for its cover featuring former footballer Paul Gascoigne.

The Sport cover received 5,782 out of a total of 37,798 votes, narrowly beating Stylist's Nigella Lawson cover.

The PPA Diversity Award, a new category highlighting efforts to represent a variety of body sizes and shapes, ages, sexualities and ethnicities, was won by IPC Media’s Essentials.

The award was presented by equalities minister Lynne Featherstone, who said: "I am thrilled to present this very special award to Essentials magazine.

"By using real women on their covers instead of models and celebrities, they are an excellent example of a magazine promoting diversity of body image – a real issue that cannot be ignored."

Writer of The Year went to Will Self for his work in Hearst Magazine's Esquire, although Alex Bilmes, editor of Esquire, collected the award on his behalf.
