Amanda Murphy, general manager - lifestyle titles, Fairfax Magazines comments, "We are proud of our stable of market leaders. To be recognised by our industry across multiple categories is great and will motivate us even further to make each Fairfax title the best read possible."

In the Magazine of the Year category Fairfax Magazines submitted five titles and four were finalists. Cuisine took out a coveted accolade for Magazine of the Year [home & food] in this competitive market.

Continuing the roll of good luck, Prue Dashfield also took out a top award at the Cathay Pacific Travel Media Awards earlier in the week.
