Magicalia beat a strong field of competitors to win Independent Digital Publisher of the year at the award ceremony, held at the Roundhouse in London.

At the awards, Judges commented that 'Magicalia have built on last year's success with bold investment in their portfolio of quality sites. Their Premium editorial, combined with swift, well-integrated commercials has paid off with impressive revenue growth against a backdrop of a very challenging market - a class outfit.'

After winning the award two years in a row, Magicalia have high hopes for the year ahead with a big push into the Ecommerce sector, with their own SAAS ecommerce platform, Magicalia Commerce.
The AOP, the Association of Online Publishers, brings together the most prestigious awards in Britain's digital publishing industry. The AOP describes its mission statement as helping 'UK media owners build better digital businesses'.
