David Burton, the editor of Haymarket Network's Army title Camouflage won the award for best consumer contract magazine.
Burton was unable to collect the award in person as he was on assignment in India. Haymarket Network group editor Johnny Aldred said: "This award is a great testament to his ambition to make each issue of the magazine better than the one that preceded it."
The awards judging panel was chaired by Celia Duncan, editor of Cosmo Girl!, and included journalist Jane Moore, GMG's director of digital publishing Simon Waldman, Aegis UK & Ireland CEO Nigel Sharrocks and The Independent's media editor Ian Burrell.
