Woman's Day wins the day, on the night!

Looking out at the stunning view of the city and harbour from the top of the Auckland War Memorial Museum, there was one title that ruled them all at the 2014 Magazine Awards
last night.

Both Supreme Awards, Best Magazine of the Year and Best Editor of the Year, went to the Bauer Media’s weekly title Woman’s Day.
The judges’ comments were full of praise: "With its royal baby story, this magazine wasn't just first in New Zealand, it was first in the world. Sido Kitchin is a world-class editor whose drive is unrivalled. Highly respected by her team, her company and the industry, she provided a compelling entry by any measure. She didn’t just live up to her readers’ expectations, she gave them the wow factor.”


Other best magazines accolades were handed out to Barker’s 1972 magazine, Boating New Zealand, Idealog, New Zealand Geographic and New Zealand House & Garden.
The Lifetime Achievement Award went to Bud Little, who is a legend in the trade magazine category. Bud founded Marketplace Press in 1983 and 3Media in 2007, and launched the New Zealand Hardware Journal, as well as a number of other titles that continue to this day.


Paul Dykzeul, Chairman of the Magazine Publishers Association says; “On behalf of our industry,
I’d like to congratulate all of the winners, and everyone who entered. But I’d also like to recognise that amazing work is done behind-the-scenes every day, by production managers and finance teams, by receptionists and assistants, by HR and IT departments. Amazing gets done by mailmen, paper merchants, printers, distributors, shelf stockers and delivery drivers. Without their efforts none of this would be possible.”
