Future launches new iPad-only title Photography Week

Magazine publisher Future has launched a new digital magazine called Photography Week.

The weekly title goes on sale in mid-September and will only be available on the iPad. Future said its current stable of photography magazines 'already enjoy huge success on the Apple Newsstand", with Digital Camera World said to be the best-selling digital photography magazine on the iPad.

Together with the Canon-only title PhotoPlus and recent launches N-Photo: The Nikon Magazine and Practical Photoshop, the four titles' iPad editions have seen more than 1.3 million container app downloads, according to Future.

Photography Week was built specifically for the iPad by the team behind Digital Camera World, using Future's digital publishing software Future Folio.

'This will enable Photography Week to have the kind of interactivity and functionality not yet seen in any weekly photography title,'the company said in a statement.

It added: 'Photography Week is aimed at enthusiastic photographers all over the world regardless of their skill level. A truly international title, it will showcase the best international photography, feature tips and interviews with pro photographers from every continent, and offer a global audience the chance to get their images in the magazine every week."

Matthew Pierce, group publisher for Future's Creative portfolio, said: 'Photography Week is a major digital launch from Future, and a completely new kind of photography magazine.

'Future's existing photography portfolio is already enjoying great success on the iPad, but a weekly digital title in this sector is a logical next step for us.

Last month the company reported a 30 per cent increase in digital revenues and said more than 1.7m editions of its magazines had been sold through Apple's Newsstand since its launch in October 2011.
