The magazine rewards excellence in arts through annual Apollo Magazine Awards.
In line with its reputation as a magazine for collectors, Apollo regularly reports on museum acquisitions and international art fairs, including The European Fine Art Fair (TEFAF) in Maastricht, Netherlands, and Frieze Art Fair in London's Regent's Park, as well as publishing profiles on eminent collectors, such as Eli Broad, the Duke of Devonshire, Anita Zabludowich, Robert H. Smith, Sheihka Hussah al-Sabah and Charles Ryskamp.
Recent collaborative editions have included special issues in partnership with the J. Paul Getty Museum and the Yale Center for British Art. The current editor is Thomas Marks and regular contributors include Martin Gayford, Alan Powers, Emma Crichton-Miller, Simon Grant, Vincent Katz and art-market correspondent Susan Moore.
