Tomorrow (May 30) is the Western Magazine Awards deadline, and this time they mean it!
[Update: Source Interlink Distribution Company, one of the largest newsstand wholesalers in the U.S., faced with losing some of its biggest customers in a dispute over price and payments, has decided to discontinue operations after 20 years in business. Michael Sullivan, the CEO, sent a letter to distributors and customers saying, in part, that
While we have made significant progress in finding mutually agreeable solutions with publishers and national distributors alike, one of our largest suppliers has recently decided to cease supply and move in a different direction. As such, it's with a heavy heart that I am writing to advise you that Source Interlink Distribution Company will be discontinuing all operations in the near future...
While this is truly a sad day for Source and its roughly 6,000 employees, we are hopeful that we will be afforded the opportunity to wind down our operation in a smooth and orderly manner. In the coming days, we will do our best at keeping you informed as things progress.]Time Inc. has dumped its 2nd largest single copy wholesaler in the U.S. and switched business to a rival. It became known as part of a regulatory filing on Tuesday. The jilted wholesaler, who had been demanding a price hike, was reported to be Source Interlink, the second-largest wholesaler of the company's publications. The filing said that the decision was made because Source Interlink owed $7 million in receivables.
The company that replaced it was reported to be the News Group, owned by Canada's Jimmy Pattison, who was already Time Inc.'s number 1 wholesaler, according to a story in the New York Post.
Source Interlink was probably betting that Time Inc., only days from being spun off from Time Warner into a new public company, would fold and accept more costly terms, one source said.
“The feeling on the street is that this is a new Time Inc.,” said the executive. “The old Time Inc. would have folded.”
Time Inc., headed by CEO Joe Ripp, said the dumped wholesaler was responsible for approximately 2 percent of its revenues — or just about $67 million of its $3.3 billion in 2013 revenue.The story said that in the mid-1990s, there were 300-plus wholesalers in the U.S. but now there are three major players: News Group, Hudson News and Source Interlink. (A similar consolidation took place in Canada during the same span.)

“So many people think they’re not into fashion and clothes, but everybody is. Being even vaguely interested in the esthetic of getting dressed is being into fashion. Some people might use it to shout really loud and some people might use it more as a whisper, but it’s still communicating.”-- Serah-Marie McMahon, founder and editor of WORN magazine, in an interview with the Montreal Gazette's Ian McGillis. She was in Montreal promoting The Worn Archive, highlights from the magazine's first seven years.

The Magazine Fund offers successful applicants up to $75,000 to assist in the growth of their businesses through new strategic and marketing initiatives and new digital activities.
Guidelines and online application information.
The ads are tiny, but their arrival puts a big crack in the longstanding tradition that kept ads off magazine covers.
The industry's major players have until now almost entirely resisted pressure to sell cover ads, despite a strong need for new revenue in recent years. That's partly because ads on covers violate widely-observed guidelines from the American Society of Magazine Editors, but also because most editors believed in those guidelines, which are meant to emphasize and protect editorial independence from marketers.Advertisers are also being pitched for ads across the bottom of magazine covers (colloquially called "zippers") and possible "native" placement of ads on the contents pages.
The Canadian Magazine Code of Reader & Advertiser Engagement says
No advertisement may be promoted on the cover of the magazine or included in the editorial table of contents, unless it involves an editorially directed contest, promotion or sponsored one-off editorial extra (see “Sponsorship”).

Major shakeup at Rogers Publishing: Canadian Business; MoneySense
[Update The Globe and Mail reported that Hood will also have a new role as director of personal finance for Rogers Publishing, responsible for expanding personal finance coverage across all of the company's brands, including such magazines as Chatelaine and Today's Parent.
In an interview, Steve Maich, senior vice-president and general manager, told the Globe
“Frankly, it was primarily about cost savings,” noting that both magazines have “been performing quite well.”
But Mr. Maich also hopes the leadership changes will help the magazines take advantage of new opportunities with readers. The shift at Canadian Business won’t be radical, but after listening to subscribers and market research, the division is betting its “opportunity to win” is in speaking more directly to executives and entrepreneurs. “It’s a matter of what you choose to emphasize.”]

While Zinio is offered in Canadian libraries, many of the best known and largest titles from Rogers Media were withdrawn from the service when Rogers launched Next Issue Canada in collaboration with the five biggest U.S. magazine publishers. Also, Magazines Canada allowed a partnership with Zinio to lapse and launched its own digital newsstand, featuring member magazines.
"Library patrons are demonstrating rapid adoption of digital magazines by accessing magazine content through Zinio for Libraries, with new checkouts of online magazines averaging over 1,000,000 per month," said Rich Freese, Recorded Books President and CEO. RBdigital, partners with Zinio. "The digital media market for libraries is showing exponential growth. Every minute a new library patron is added, 13 magazines are checked out on Zinio for Libraries. We expect that the addition of international digital magazines with new language content will appeal to an even broader selection of patrons with multinational interests and diverse cultural backgrounds."

Quote, unquote: Those unlovable banner ads
"If we are going to fund and build the Internet of the future we all dream of, we are going to need to build a new model of advertising that actually works and that users don’t hate. So, rather than hide behind the lame excuses, the made-up lift studies, the same old bullshit hand-waving and the general complaining, let’s all agree that the time has come to think outside the little box."

The awards are meant to recognize the best research studies published in 2013 that promote the use of magazine media as an advertising medium, anywhere in the world. ‘Magazine media’ includes print, digital platforms and/or any other relevant publisher channel. Magazines Canada was included in the list because of the "Media Connections Study" released last year.
It is in impressive company, covering a wide geography and range of subjects, research done by other associations such as American Business Media and the Magazine Publishers of Australia and major publishing companies such as IPC Media, UK, Meredith Corporation and Bauer Media, all selected for a particular piece of industry research.
FIPP is the worldwide magazine media association representing companies and individuals involved in the creation, publishing, or distribution of quality content, in whatever form, by whatever channel, and in the most appropriate frequency, to defined audiences of interest.

According to the museum, Gottleib’s greatest challenges were securing signatures for covers featuring more than one person. Some of his successes included all four of the Beatles as well as the Apollo 11 astronauts.
The exhibit also features the Robert Kennedy cover designed by Roy Lichtenstein and dated two weeks before Kennedy’s assassination.Gottleib was not the only person who had this peculiar hobby. A man called Roger Brink from El Dorado Hills, California , collected covers for some 39 years -- 2,000 or them in five huge binders.
He has received signatures from the likes of Henry Kissinger and Jay Leno. The holdouts? The Vatican and the British royal family. Brink hopes that Will and Kate, the modern royals that they are, will break that tradition. After all, Ronald Reagan signed covers five times. He once got Katharine Hepburn on the phone while trying to get her signature. Muammar Gaddafi signed a cover for him, though not in English.A man from New Jersey, Scott Smith, decided to make it his quest to get every Sports Illustrated cover autographed. He told the LA Times that he had multiple autographs from much-covered subjects such as Michael Jordan, Muhammad Ali and Mickey Mantle. There are 4,413 sports stars on 2,913 covers of SI, but an unnamed woman on the cover of the October 17, 1960 issue, holding a kite, eluded him. She died at the age of 81 on the same day as he talked to the LA Times. A cosmic joke.

Now it makes a certain amount of sense for someone who depends in part on the mailing industry to look at gaining some advantage over other printers. The increases in the price of postage and the reductions in service open an opportunity.
“Look what USPS is doing to the mailing industry. It's just not sustainable. There's significant cost increases that they've put through. They're shifting cost to the players in the mailing industry, Quinlan said. “All these things, these are costs for the mailing industry that, quite frankly, we and other people like us have to go ahead and mitigate to our customers because our customers can't go ahead and aren't going to take the additional cost and look for people like us to, again, go ahead and mitigate those.”
“You look at Ladies' Home Journal that was announced by Meredith earlier this week [would be shutting down]. I mean, 40 to 47 percent of their cost was related to postage. It was nothing to do with electronic content.”Read more »

“The new Chawkers Fellows will be solely funded by The Chawkers Foundation who will provide a stipend to the three of them (in an amount acceptable to the Ministry of Labour) for the six month period, which begins now and ends at the end of September,” wrote co-publisher Shelley Ambrose in an email to the Star.Ambrose maintains the magazine is not "hiring" the fellows.
“We, of course, offered the opportunity to those who were affected by the Ministry of Labour’s shut down,” she wrote.
“The Walrus Foundation does not pay them. This is a project by The Chawkers Foundation that we are creating for Chawkers,” Ambrose wrote. “We did not ‘rehire.’ The three individuals who are here now were interns before. We offered the former interns who were affected by the Ministry’s order FIRST chance at becoming Fellows (which we were thrilled to be able to do) and taking part in this pilot project and they agreed.”Of the seven interns found on the premises by the ministry of labour, two were kept on because they were paying tuition at vocational schools and three are now working again courtesy of Chawkers. Which, we suppose, means that two interns are essentially out of luck.
Now, a bit of background. The Chawkers Foundation paid $5 million to help get The Walrus off the ground a decade ago -- pledging $1 million a year for five years. The scion of the family, Ken Alexander, became the editor and quit in 2008 after a tumultuous reign. For a time, early on in the magazine's life, the Metcalfe Foundation had funded Walrus internships -- one of the most lucrative programs in Canada -- but several years ago pulled its support. Thereafter, interns were unpaid. It's not known what the three interns are now to be paid, but if it is at the Ontario minimum wage, the nut for the Chawkers is probably in the range of $65,000.

Vice describes it as “a deep dive into the drama that surrounds sports before and after the great moments on the field.”
According to a post on Streamingmedia.com, Vice is also adding new content to its new food channel, Munchies. The enterprise's YouTube channel has close to 7 million subscribers and its HBO series had just been renewed for a third season.
Vice co-founder and CEO Shane Smith, who had clearly started his NewFront celebration early, declared that “upfronts are weird,” because one-third of the people in the room were simply curious what Vice was doing, one-third were journalists looking to pick the company apart, and one-third would give them money.
“I believe we’re the first platform-agnostic company out there,” Smith said. “All we care about is that we make good content.”
“We don’t have a f*cking algorithm. We have 5,000 contributors around the world,” Smith declared.

The prize is given by the site derrierlemiroir.ca based on an online poll.

It is the second time the magazine has won.
Ontario's Bill 91 Waste Reduction Act likely to die on order paper
A new government, no matter what party gets in power (highly likely to be short-lived minority government) would have the opportunity to rethink the waste diversion regime and, working with all the stakeholders -- including publishers -- could come up with something that looks after the environment and the taxpayer.
[Update: It should be noted that dozens of other pieces of very worthwhile legislation are also off the order paper with the election.]
“The Starch data show that magazine ads have lost little or none of their power to motivate consumers. Each of the actions we measure represents a high level of engagement; and, when it comes to joining a social network or the use of a QR code, print magazine ads are moving consumers into a digital universe where longer term relationships can be developed and tracked. The result is deeper connections with brands, and a greater likelihood to buy."
