"For a stand-out editorial focus and tech strategy, a clear understanding of audience, multiple examples of editorial and commercial successes and an excellently crafted entry that showed the publisher to be game-changers in this category," the AOP said.

Judges singled out our Brexit Passport Design Competition and our survey of the gender balance at the world's 100 largest architecture firms as being particularly impressive.

The Association of Online Publishers' annual awards were attended by Wai Shin Li, Lucy Jones, Robbie Wallace, Rupinder Bhogal, Ben Hobson and Marcus Fairs of Dezeen

"The judges were really impressed with their change-inducing campaigns for Brexit passports and gender study within architecture. The judges loved it," said the AOP.

AOP Digital Publishing Awards are the premier awards for the UK's digital publishing industry. This was the fifth time Dezeen has won trophies at the awards.

At last year's ceremony Dezeen won both the Editorial Team of the Year and the Best Use of Video categories. In 2015 we won the Commercial Partnership category for our Dezeen and MINI Frontiers collaboration, while in 2012 we were named Digital Business Publisher of the Year.
