Magazines' Average Audience Up 9.3% From Last Year

Magazine Media 360°The latest Magazine Media 360° Brand Audience Report reveals the average audience for magazine brands is up 9.3% versus a year ago, the largest increase since early 2015, according to the MPA.

The August 2016 data shows that print – which includes digital editions – is holding steady, with a slight 1.2% increase in audience.

Most new unique users come from the mobile Web, which is also the largest source of monthly magazine media growth (+28.5%), as audiences shift from viewing on desktops and laptops to mobile devices.

While video represents the lowest share platform in the report, every month it continues to log double-digit percentage growth, with a notable jump of 65% in its year-over-year performance, the MPA reports.

The report also shows that of the 133 reported magazine brands, two-thirds of them (90 brands) have higher average audience numbers compared to August 2015.

The brands that had the highest percentage growth compared to August of last year are W (131.5%), Marie Claire (82.1%), New Yorker (69.2%), Esquire (61.6%) and Runner's World (50%).

The top five participating brands with the highest total audience — across print, Web, mobile Web and video – for August 2016 are ESPN The Magazine, People, Forbes, WebMD and Allrecipes.

Pulitzer Prizes Open All Journalism Categories to Magazines

The Pulitzer Prizes

Print and online magazines are now eligible for Pulitzer Prizes in all journalism categories, the Pulitzer Prize Board recently announced. Entries of work done in 2016 will be accepted beginning in December 2016 for the 2017 prizes. Pulitzer entry guidelines have been adjusted to reflect the expanded eligibility.

The board made its decision last week after two years of experimentation. Two journalism categories were open to magazines in 2015, five this year. New Yorker staff writers had three finalists during that time, and two of them won Pulitzer Prizes this year. | READ MORE

Tips & Techniques: Qualified Employee Copies

Employee copies are defined as copies distributed to current or former employees of a publication. Employee copies may be reported as qualified paid circulation if this benefit is described in the company's employee manual or other human resources documentation and a list of employees receiving copies is maintained.

Paid employee copies must meet all the requirements of paid subscriptions.

Paid employee copies should be reported under the circulation category by which the employee receives the copies. For example, copies delivered to an employee's home via carrier should be reported under Paid Carrier.

If you have questions about Qualified Employee Copies, please call Verified at 415-461-6006, ext. 210.
