The Maggies 2014 Shortlist Announced

Media Release

Wednesday 3rd September 2014

THE MAGAZINE COVER OF THE YEAR AWARDS SHORTLIST ANNOUNCED!

Auckland (3rd September 2014) – While NZ Doctor cries out for “Eternal Vigilance”, and NZ Golf Leisure & Lifestyle addresses the “Winds of War”; Dish evokes a more relaxed feel with the cover line “Summer Days” and a tasty image of casual barbecue food.

A swooning, bearded, love-struck character and a “Made with Love” caramel sticky date pull-apart loaf battle it out for Best Lifestyle Cover, while the “Mustang Masters” on the cover of New Zealand Classic Car remind us of the growing Kiwi love affair with Mustangs.

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 2014 consumer awards, The Maggies.

New Zealand’s leading online magazine and newspaper subscription business, iSUBSCRiBE, today announced the shortlist for its annual publishing awards. This national poll celebrates and awards the best covers over the next five weeks as the voting goes live at www.themaggies.co.nz

The nominated entries were judged by a panel of industry heavyweights who selected the shortlist of 5 covers per category. This panel included:

• Julian Andrews, Commercial Director, Magazine Publishers Association New Zealand
• Leonie Barlow, Journalist and Editor, www.thestyleinsider.co.nz
• Andrew Burge, CEO & Founder of iSUBSCRiBE 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

Julian Andrews, Commercial Director of MPA NZ, said; “Returning to the industry after a couple of years away, I was struck by how far our cover designs have come. I love the use of illustration, coverline-free images, or modern fonts in our niche titles while still applauding the work that goes into designing around the commercial imperatives that drive the big retail sellers.”

The overall winner and individual category winners will be announced early October 2014.

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 400 magazine subscriptions. In addition, $1 from every subscription sold using the iSUBSCRiBE gift vouchers will be donated to Barnardos. Barnardos support, challenge and empower families, communities and society to make Aotearoa New Zealand the best place to be a child.

Werewolf: Katniss Joins The News Team

From the outset, the Hunger Games series has dwelt obsessively on the ways that media images infiltrate our public and personal lives... From that grim starting point, Mockingjay Part One takes the process a few stages further. There is very little of the film that does not involve the characters (a) being on screens (b) making propaganda footage to be screened and (c) reacting to what other characters have been doing on screens.
