THE MAGAZINE COVER OF THE YEAR AWARDS SHORTLIST ANNOUNCED!
Auckland (8th September 2011) – NZ rugby player, Sonny Bill Williams, stares down the competition second year running, while Dan Carter catches his first kingfish on the cover of New Zealand Fishing World.
A brightly-coloured butterfly made of lamb flies off the plate to welcome Spring and a plate of pastel-coloured macaroons beckons to us to “get festive” as they battle it out for Best Food & Wine Cover, while the piercing eyes of the male model on REMIX competes with Drew Barrymore’s bright red pout.
These are just some of the images that are in the running to win the Best Magazine Cover in their respective categories, plus the coveted Magazine Cover of the Year Award in this year’s 2011 consumer awards, The Maggies.
A panel of industry heavyweights gathered to select a shortlist of 5 covers per category from the nominated entries. This panel included: Andrew Burge, CEO & Founder of iSUBSCRiBE Pty Ltd Lindsey Dawson, creator of three major women’s titles in New Zealand More, Grace and Next and winner of the MPA Lifetime Achievement Award 2009 Gideon Keith, Creative Director at Strategy Auckland John McClintock, Executive Director of the MPANZ Debra Millar, General Manager of Publishing at Penguin NZ Paula Ryan, founder of Fashion Quarterly and Simply You and winner of the MPA Lifetime Achievement Award 2010 Vicki Lee, CEO of Cure Kids
John McClintock, Executive Director of the Magazine Publishers Association New Zealand and chair of the judging panel, said, “The Maggies (NZ) 2011 once again has shown that the skill and talent existing within the magazine category, for the production of outstanding front covers, is as strong asever. Brilliant photography integrated with extraordinary design skills ensures that New Zealand titles rank with ‘world best’. The judges debated at length to agree on the finalists from a wide range of high calibre entrants.”
The overall winner and individual category winners will be announced early November 2011.
The public will be incentivised to vote for their favourite magazine cover with a reward of a $5 iSUBSCRiBE gift voucher. The voucher may be redeemed against iSUBSCRiBE’s entire range of over 280 magazine subscriptions.
