Last Friday evening we attended the Webstar Magazine Media awards in Auckland. It has been a tough year all round, so the event was packed with magazine media ready to shake off some of the 2020 blues. We are incredibly proud to report that dish not only won the Webstar Award for Best Magazine (home, food and lifestyle category), but also the two biggies of the night - the People's Choice, and the Supreme Magazine of the Year awards.
As you know we are a small fiercely passionate team, so this was a wonderful acknowledgement of the work we have put in this year to keep delivering the best content possible to you – our readers. A huge thanks to you for supporting us by buying the magazine, sending in feedback and being an extended part of the dish family – it was your voting that saw us take home the People’s Choice award, and we are incredibly grateful.
Here’s what the judges had to say:
“This year, dish showed us all how to survive a pandemic and a publishing shut down. It sneaked in under the wire with a Home Comforts issue full of food that was spot on for locked down Kiwis … and then delivered spot-on email missives throughout the lockdown to back it up. Editor Sarah Tuck cooked, styled and photographed from her living room – and kept right on listening and responding to what her audience were wanting. dish is a magazine perfectly in tune with its readers. A well-deserved win”
“A new high-energy editor has revitalised an already-classy title, creating a magazine that delivers to its readers with every issue”
We couldn't be more thrilled with the result and can’t wait to keep delivering more of the content you love.
Raising our glasses to you…
