For the past three years, the National Media Awards Foundation (NMAF) has partnered with Indigo Books & Music Inc. to launch a nation-wide newsstand promotion designed to increase awareness about Canada’s best magazines published in both official languages. The NMAF is excited to announce the promotion will be continuing this year.
The participating 2017 award-winning titles will be displayed in a dedicated NMA newsstand frame in 89 Indigo superstores across the country. Specifically designed to help Canadian publishers make a statement on newsstands — a challenge in a market that is more competitive now than ever — this promotion provides a one-of- kind opportunity for magazines to increase their visibility and grow their newsstand sales and subscriptions.
Publications taking part in this initiative include 2017 Magazine of the Year winner Cottage Life, as well as nominees and award winners Arc Poetry, Brick, Canadian Notes & Queries, Caribou, Chatelaine, Châtelaine, ChickaDEE, Esse Arts + Opinions, FASHION Magazine, Geist, GRAND, Jeu Revue de théâtre, L’actualité, Literary Review of Canada, Maclean’s, MusicWorks, Nouveau Projet, Prairie Fire, Prefix Photo, Ricardo, SAD Mag, The Feathertale Review, The Malahat Review, The New Quarterly, THIS Magazine, Toronto Life and United Church Observer.
The NMAF, whose mandate is to recognize and promote award-winning Canadian magazines and content, strives to implement initiatives that help publications thrive in the evolving magazine industry. With this newsstand promotional campaign, made possible thanks to the generous support of the Ontario Media Development Corporation, the Foundation is providing publishers with a distinctive opportunity to leverage their prestigious distinction, maximize their impact on newsstands and bolster their readership.
