THE PICTURE PREMIUM is a more explicit monthly offshoot of PICTURE magazine.
Two versions of THE PICTURE PREMIUM are produced. The aim is to get an Unrestricted rating for one, and a Category 1 rating for the other. From time to time, the Unrestricted issue is awarded a Category 1, and the Category 1 issue awarded a Category 2. The publisher then modifies the proof-prints, and resubmits until Unrestricted and Category 1 ratings are achieved. Only one issue has ever been banned.
In February 2007, the proof print of THE PICTURE PREMIUM #103 (Restricted issue) was banned by the Classification Board. Later in February, a modified proof-print was rated Category 1.
In February 2007, the proof-print of THE PICTURE PREMIUM #103 (Unrestricted issue) was rated Category 1. Later in February, a modified proof-print was rated Unrestricted (M not recommended for readers under 15 years).
