History and profileEdit

Billed Bladet was first published on 5 April 1938.[1][2] The magazine was modelled on the American magazines Life and Look.[1] Billed Bladet is part of Aller Media.[3][4] The former owner of the magazine was Den Berlingske Gruppe.[5] Aller Media acquired the magazine in 1987.[1][5] It is published by Aller Press AS weekly[6][7] and has its headquarters in Copenhagen.[8][9]

During its early period Billed Bladet had a much more comprehensive coverage and included more photographs.[10] Immediately after World War II the magazine published the photographs of the Nazi concentration camps in Germany.[10] Later it began to provide news on celebrities[11][12] and royal families as well as on television programs, including Vild med dans (Denmark's Dancing with the Stars) and X-factor (Denmark's Got Talent).[3][13] The weekly publishes a list of Dress of the Week.[3] Its target audience is women over forty.[13]

Billed Bladet has high ethical standards in regard to the news it publishes.[12] For a long time the magazine asked the permission of the members of the Danish royal family when they would be photographed in public places.[12] Later this policy was changed and they began to be photographed based on the decision of the editorial team of the magazine.[12]

Annemette Krakau has been the editor-in-chief of Billed Bladet since 2006.[1]
