Wired UK is the voice of the science and technology community. It covers a broad range of topics including design, architecture, culture, the economy, politics and philosophy. In 2009 it won Launch of the Year at the British Society of Magazine Editors Awards and was then named as the magazine of the year by the Digital Magazine Awards in 2011 and in 2014. But the best award is its large and loyal readership.
