Vogue Named Ad Age Magazine of the Year
(NEW YORK) Ad Age feted this year’s magazine A-listers at the publication’s annual opening night dinner yesterday, hosted at the American Magazine Conference inside Midtown’s Grand Hyatt Hotel. Vogue topped the charts at number one scoring the esteemed Magazine of the Year award for increasing ad pages more than 9 percent between January and October, upping newsstand sales 13% since last year, increasing circulation 2.1 percent, and sponsoring Fashion’s Night Out. The 2010 winner, People StyleWatch, passed the honorary torch to the fashion behemoth. In past years, Women’s Health, The Economist, Better Homes and Gardens, and More held the top-tier title. “It's easier to grow when you're new and relatively small,” said Ad Age on Vogue. “But when you're this established and you grow anyway, you're doing more than a few things right.”
Additionally, Kim Kelleher netted Ad Age Publisher of the Year at Time magazine for "bringing the international editions together again and closing significant global ad deals" while Monocle’s Tyler Brule (the founding ed of Wallpaper) took home the coveted Editor of the Year award for delivering a “finely honed, international magazine with an uncommon mix of intelligence, visual flair, and substance on global affairs, business, culture, and design.”
Other top-ten champs include: The Economist, This Old House, The New Yorker, National Geographic, Monocle, Vanity Fair, Garden & Gun, the Food Network Magazine, and Time magazine holding strong in the number two slot. Congrats, loves!
