The Royal Photographic Society's RPS Journal, the world's oldest photography publication, has won a top industry award at the MemCom Awards for the Best Membership Magazine (Sport and Recreation). The award was received by publisher John Innes of Think Publishing which has produced the magazine since June 2014.

RPS Director-General commented: 'The MemCom award recognises the work put into the Journal's relaunch last year by The Society and Think Publishing. The Journal has been incredibly well received by The Society's membership. It delivers a great read every month featuring topics across photography and, of course, making use of some of the world's best imagery from members and others. The editorial team led by editor Clare Harris will continue to ensure it meets the needs of members.'

The RPS Journal was first published in March 1853, just two months after The Society was founded. It has appeared continuously since then making it the world’s oldest photographic periodical. Over the past 162 years The RPS Journal has been at the forefront of many of the technological and artistic changes within photography, it has shown work by many of the great names of photography and, of course, it has charted The RPS’s important role within photography and the work of its members. In 2014 the RPS Journal returned to monthly publication with an increased pagination and a new design.
