Adbusters takes Gold
Adbusters magazine’s March/April 2012 issue won gold for the Best Magazine Cover of the Year at the 2013 National Magazine Awards. Congratulations to this unique, BC-based magazine that has international appeal.

This fast-food satire cover was their second best selling issue in 2012..and beat their overall average on the year's other five issues by 22%. That’s great!

Only the Jan/Feb 2012 issue sold better for Adbusters in 2012…selling 36% more copies than the award-winner, and 81% more than the average on the other five issues.

While this award is essentially an award for artistic merit, it’s nice to see a cover chosen that also enjoyed strong sales at newsstands, and at a premium priced $8.95!
