Everybody’s Favourite Is Dish!

10 April 2006

Everybody’s Favourite Is Dish!

Jones Publishing is proud to announce that Dish magazine has been judged Supreme Winner - Magazine of the Year 2006 at the Magazine Publishers’ Awards on Friday night.

Each year the Supreme Award is the final announcement of the evening and is given to one of the eight Magazine of the Year category winners. Just minutes earlier, Dish had won Magazine of the Year in the Home & Food category. Dish also won Cover of the Year in its category.

In announcing the award the judges drew particular attention to the “brilliant collaborative effort” that goes into the creation of a magazine of “all-round excellence”.

Judge Carroll du Chateau said Dish brought a point of difference. “We all thought it had a wonderful feel about it. We felt the cuisine sort of market was a little stale and that Dish was really new and fresh and it was lovely to see a magazine that was coming from a new publishing house.”

Co-publisher Julian Andrews gives full credit to the team working across every aspect of the publication. “Whether it’s the people here at Jones, Catherine Bell and Claire Aldous from Epicurean, or the designers from Maxim Group, I think it’s fair to say that Dish is a labour of love for everyone who works on it. It’s great to be recognised in this way for all of our efforts.”

Co-publisher and Editor Catherine Bell says "It is wonderful to be acknowledged for doing something really well. This award means such a lot, not only because the title is still relatively new but because it comes from within New Zealand – the market for which we publish Dish."

The Magazine of the Year Award comes less then two years after Dish was launched in August 2004, targeting the “upper socio-economic food enthusiast”. The Dish target audience is people – primarily women – who had both the time, passion and the money to enjoy a premium cooking experience.Dish’s latest ABC audit (period July 2005 to December 2005) produced a net NZ circulation figure of 22,048. Paid subscriptions now total over 7000. So, don’t you think it’s time you tried everybody else’s favourite Dish?
