The winners of Adweek’s annual Hot List have been announced, and since there’s about 1,734 categories, everyone won! Congrats everyone.
Okay, not everyone was a winner. Harper’s Bazaar was though. It was honored as the Hottest Magazine of the year:
Hearst’s 147-year-old fashion icon, led by editor-in-chief Glenda Bailey and publisherCarol Smith, is enjoying rare growth for a women’s magazine. The September issue was its biggest ever, with 444 pages. Total circ grew 5 percent in the first half, as the magazine raised its rate base for the first time in over two decades (from 700,000 to 725,000). A digital overhaul led to 5.7 million unique views in November, up 320 percent YOY. And Bazaar is the most followed magazine brand on Pinterest.
