The Guardian has revealed the new-look Guardian Weekly, which has been redesigned into a weekly news magazine from its format as a weekly newspaper.

The new-look Guardian Weekly combines the best reporting, opinion, features and photography from The Guardian, Observer, theguardian.com and the international editions in Australia and the US.

Guardian Weekly was originally established in 1919 as an international weekly newspaper, with its aim back then to showcase what was “best and most interesting in The Guardian, what is most distinctive and independent of time, in a compact form”.

The new Guardian Weekly will now have three editions: Australia, North America and a global edition for the UK and the rest of the world. The new magazine format will also have more pages than the original newspaper format.

Guardian Weekly will continue to be edited by Will Dean, who will work closely with The Guardian’s Aussie and US teams.

“I hope the new Weekly will give admirers of Guardian journalism around the world an exciting new way to read our reporting,” he said.

“The beautiful new magazine offers readers extensive coverage of world events, with in-depth explainers and stunning photography.”

Guardian Australia editor Lenore Taylor said: “The Guardian is committed to providing quality, independent news for a progressive Australian audience in the formats that they need. Many people who read digital news still enjoy picking up a paper at the weekend.

“With Guardian Weekly, you get a roundup of the world’s most important news stories delivered to your home wherever you are in Australia, and the new format means we can offer Australians even more of our international journalism in print, plus a curated selection of our best content from Guardian Australia.”

Evelyn Webster, CEO of Guardian Australia and Guardian US, said: “I am delighted we are able to fulfil our Australian and North American readers’ growing demand for more localised content, packaged in a new format which is both visually arresting and provides our journalism with much greater space to breathe.

“We have enjoyed strong growth in The Guardian’s US and Australian operations, and we fully expect that to continue as we develop our product offerings in these territories.”

Building on a current global circulation of 42,000 including over 32,000 subscribers, the new-look Guardian Weekly will be more widely available to buy on newsstands in Australia and the UK. There are plans for further expansion in the US.
