This is the communal blog of New Media's Rose Cohen (@rose_cohen), Kamiel Ebrahim and Lucrezia Wolfaardt (@12Lucz), nominated as most deserving by their peers to attend the 38th FIPP World Magazine Congress being held for the first time in New Delhi, India, 10-12 October 2011.
New Media recently asked its team to nominate three of their peers - one from editorial, one from design and one from production - whom they thought most deserved to go to the 38th FIPP World Magazine Congress being held for the first time in New Delhi, India, 10-12 October 2011.
In this light, editor Rose Cohen (@rose_cohen), group art director Kamiel Ebrahim and production director Lucrezia (Luccie) Wolfaardt (@12Lucz) headed off to the congress in October. This is their communal blog.
Rose Cohen: Despite the drive towards digital media, worldwide research consistently demonstrates that magazines are still the medium consumers trust the most and are inspired by. Nicholas Coleridge, VP of Condé Nast International, UK made this message abundantly clear in his presentation to delegates on the second day of the 38th annual FIPP World Magazine Congress in New Delhi, India, this week.
Rose Cohen: The first FIPP World Magazine Congress was held in Paris 38 years ago. Now, in 2011, it has made its way to India for the first time (or as Aroon Purie, chairman of FIPP, put it in his opening address: “It’s about time”).
