In 2011, Good's cover featuring a handmade pohutukawa wreath evoking the Christmas spirit was crowned winner of the second edition of The Maggies. And it went on to win the supreme magazine title at this year's magazine awards. Coincidence? We think not. So get your nominations in for this year's edition of The Maggies, a national poll to recognise and celebrate the best New Zealand magazine covers of the past year.

Initiated in the UK four years ago and launched in New Zealand in 2010 by magazine and newspaper subscription business iSUBSCRiBE, the awards were designed to help improve the profile and popularity of the magazine publishing industry.

John McClintock, Executive Director of the Magazine Publishers Association New Zealand, will return to Chair the panel of judges for The Maggies 2012. The panel of industry heavyweights includes: 

  • 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 
  • Jude Dobson, TV Presenter and Producer 
  • Rachel Glucina, New Zealand Herald Columnist 
  • Gideon Keith, Creative Director at Strategy Auckland 
  • John McClintock, Executive Director of Magazine at MPANZ 
  • Paula Ryan, founder of Fashion Quarterly and Simply You and winner of the MPA Lifetime Achievement Award 2010 

The awards are open exclusively to New Zealand print magazines and the first two years of The Maggies in New Zealand have seen  the Awards grow exponentially; with publisher entries increasing by 45 percent and consumer voting rising by 33 percent. 

The judges will select a shortlist from the nominated covers, which will be put to public vote from 22 October via, and the winners will be announced in late November. While there is no formal entry fee, publishers are encouraged to make a voluntary donation to The Maggies chosen charity, The New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation.

The public will be incentivised to vote for their favourite magazine cover with a reward of a $5 iSUBSCRiBE gift voucher. In addition, $1 from every subscription sold using the iSUBSCRiBE gift vouchers will be donated to The New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation.

Industry welcomes KPEX, but also asks a few questions

While yesterday's announcement by the nation's big four publishers about the creation of a joint ad exchange has largely been welcomed by the industry as positive move that could, if effective, serve to keep a bigger chunk of ad spend in the local market rather than feeding it into the international exchanges, it has also raised a few questions that will need to be answered as it comes into effect. We chat to the big brains at Countdown, Foodstuffs, OMD, Vivaki, Acquire Online, ANZA, Bauer and TVNZ about their thoughts on this move.
