Outdoor Swimmer wins Best Indie magazine 2023

We’re thrilled to announce that your favourite swimming magazine has been awarded Best Indie magazine and Best Cover at the European Publishing Awards 2023

We’re excited to tell you that Outdoor Swimmer has bagged two awards from the European Publishing Awards 2023. These include Best Indie and Best Cover (one-shot), which we received for our July 2022 cover. The cover was shot by Roger Taylor and featured artistic swimming group Almost Synchro.

For the best Indie category, the judges commented on our publication, “Cool pictures full of vitality and lust for life. Niche topic, but high circulation. By design and imagery, the magazine draws attention to swimming and meets the demands of its community.”

We’re thrilled with these awards and pride ourselves on creating content across our magazine and digital outputs as swimmers, for swimmers.

As an independent magazine, run by a small team of passionate swimmers we rely on your subscriptions and support. If you don’t subscribe, why not take the opportunity now!
