Showcasing Success: Innovation in Canadian Magazine Media

In Canada, great magazines are made every day. New titles continue to emerge, and our most distinguished magazine brands continue to get better. Why? We can thank the innovative people who work in magazines—people like you, our members, who develop the concepts, write and edit, design, produce, publish, distribute, hold events and engage communities of readers across print, digital and multi-platform channels.

Showcasing Success: Innovative magazine professionals share the stories behind their most successful work and favourite projects.

At Magazines Canada, we are inspired every day by Canadian magazines and the innovative people and ideas that drive our industry forward. The Showcasing Success project seeks out, interviews and shares stories and best practices from the diverse voices producing great things in Canada’s magazine media. We’re excited to share ten new case studies with you, each one of which focuses on the creativity, innovation and successes within Canadian magazines.

The case studies will be released in April and May, so be sure to check back! Join us as we share these amazing member magazines and the incredible work they create every day across all platforms.

As part of Showcasing Success, we’ll also be debuting a promotional video at MagNet 2018 that highlights magazine media innovation. Following in the footsteps of previous Magazines Canada videos like “Anything Can Happen at a Magazine Stand” and “Magazines Connect Canadians,” this new video showcases the vitality and creativity of magazines and their creators. Join us on April 25 at the Courtyard Toronto Downtown for an evening reception sponsored by Inovva to celebrate outstanding achievements in our industry, and get a glimpse of your colleagues’ work on the big screen!

Showcasing Success is made possible with the support of the Ontario Media Development Corporation.
