VOTE! Magazine Awards 2012

By Aisling | February 16 2012 | 10 Comments

The Magazine Awards are go!

We grew up reading magazines and there are some we love, some we kind of like and some that we think are crapola.  So in order to get a true measure of what the online, savvy media consumer (that’s you by the way) is rating we want to hear what you think. (Read about how the Awards came into being and our collaboration with British Beauty Blogger).

Each poll has 10 options.  Nine are suggested by us and if your favourite is among them just click and submit to vote.  The tenth is blank – so if you don’t like any of our suggestions you can go ahead and type in your own and it will be counted.

We want to find out what you’re truly, honestly rating.  We want every single one of you to vote (and your friends and your friends friends)!  Oh and your mammies too OF COURSE.

Now what are you waiting for?  Get thee to the Magazine Awards 2012 page and enjoy!

Polls will remain open until Sunday 26th Feb and we’ll announce the winners a week or so later.

    Yay! Fantastic idea! Only thing which strucj me was it was a but unusual to see the results after voting while the voting was still open?

  • Aisling says:

    rosey – we’re just trying out different ways of voting. We were going to allow repeat voting but got some feedback that some people didn’t want that – but I was wondering how the rest of you feel?

    Do you think we should reopen the polls in the last couple of days with no results shown and give everyone a second chance to vote, add the two results together and then the winners would be a total surprise? Does that make sense!

    Could be more fun!

    Let me know though, cos this is the first year and we just want to make it fun to vote it

  • Bojangles says:

    I’ve just voted and sort of tried to resist looking at the results, but just couldn’t contain myself. I agree with Rosey I think I’d prefer to see the results at the end. I’m the sort that will always wait until Christmas day to open her pressies – not even a peek me.

    That said, it’s a great idea and fun at that.

    Hi Aisling, seeing as you asked, I do think that people should only be allowed to vote once. Otherwise you could get very skewed results. I have images of some poor intern who works for one of these magazines having to spend a morning voting over and over again for their own publication! Or am I just too cynical?

  • Bojangles says:

    Haha MilkyMoo, that crossed my mind too. I remember the awards…*puts on Poll Police cap*

  • Kirstie says:

    You can only vote once though?

  • Aisling says:

    Haha no you can only vote once, interns breathe a sigh of relief! But we do encourage magazines to get their readers to vote, to create some healthy competition!

    I was just thinking of ways to create suspense at the end – perhaps by hiding the results and allowing everyone one last vote?

  • rosey says:

    I think the best way to create suspense is to keep the results secret until the end – jaysis the suspense of the awards was incredible! You could have a cut off point where the top say 5 mags in each category were revealed and then reopen to vote again?

    But regardless of how you do it, I love this idea. Oh yes, magazine editors, ze tables are turned now *rubs hands gleefully*

  • Aisling says:

    rosey, yes good ideas there!
