The Maggies Returns in 2014 - Magazine Cover of the Year

Media Release Thursday 3rd July 2014

iSUBSCRiBE ANNOUNCES THE RETURN OF THE MAGGIES IN 2014

Nominations are now open for The Maggies 2014; a national poll to recognise and celebrate the best New Zealand magazine covers of the past year.

Launched in New Zealand in 2010 by leading magazine and newspaper subscription business, iSUBSCRiBE, the awards were designed to help improve the profile and popularity of the magazine publishing industry. The high profile competition is supported by New Zealand’s magazine trade body, Magazine Publishers Association New Zealand.

In 2013, Dish (February/March 2013) cover, which “evokes the simplicity of favourite Kiwi summer food”, was crowned winner of The Maggies 2013 – Magazine Cover of the Year.

The nominations will be judged by some of the industry’s leading figures. They will select the shortlist of entries, which will then be put to a public vote. The panel of industry heavyweights includes:

• Leonie Barlow, Journalist and Editor, www.thestyleinsider.co.nz

• Andrew Burge, CEO & Founder of iSUBSCRiBE Pty Ltd

• Jude Dobson, TV Presenter and Producer

• Rachel Glucina, New Zealand Herald Columnist

• Paula Ryan, founder of Fashion Quarterly and Simply You and winner of the MPA Lifetime Achievement Award 2010

• Commercial Director, Magazine Publishers Association New Zealand (TBA)

Described by HELLO magazine in the UK as “The magazine version of The Oscars”, The Maggies is a national consumer award that celebrates the best magazine covers of the past year. The awards are open exclusively to New Zealand print magazines. The Maggies in New Zealand have grown exponentially over the past three years; with publisher entries increasing by 30% and consumer voting rising by 25%.

The judges will select a short list from the nominated covers, which will be put to a public vote from 1st September via www.themaggies.co.nz, and the winners will be announced in early October. While there is no formal entry fee, publishers are encouraged to make a voluntary donation to The Maggies chosen charity, Barnardos New Zealand. Every year Barnardos helps thousands of children and families with problems big and small through their child and family social services, and with further support they will be able to do even more.

The public will be incentivised to vote for their favourite magazine cover with a reward of a $5 iSUBSCRiBE gift voucher – a stark contrast to other public polls, in which participants pay to vote. The voucher may be redeemed against iSUBSCRiBE’s entire range of magazine and newspaper subscriptions. In addition, $1 from every subscription sold using the iSUBSCRiBE gift vouchers will be donated to Barnardos.

ENDS.
