Future Publishing has announced plans to launch a new iPad-only magazine called Photography Week in September, as it builds on its "huge success" with other titles on Apple's Newsstand platform.

Just last month the specialist publisher received the Launch of the Year award from the Association of Online Publishers, said to be in recognition of its "bold investment" in Newsstand magazine copies.

The latest figures from the publisher show a 37 per cent increase in digital revenues, partly credited to its portfolio of magazines on Newsstand.

Sales of Future magazines on the iPad reached more than £3 million in October last year and recent figures were said to show around £500,000 in monthly sales.

In a release today Future said Photography Weekly will be "packed with rich, interactive content that shows readers how to improve their images and get more from their cameras".

The publisher added that following on from the download success of other photography-related titles on Newsstand the latest magazine "has been 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".

"Photography Week is a major digital launch from Future, and a completely new kind of photography magazine," group publisher for Future's creative portfolio Matthew Pierce added in the release.

"Innovative, interactive and truly international, Photography Week has been developed from the ground-up for the iPad by the team behind the award-winning Digital Camera World and aims to help any photographer improve their images."
