Adweek‘s list of 2014’s hottest magazines is finally here. The mag combined its own picks and allowed readers to vote on their favorite glossies for the year. Topping the list for “hottest” magazine was Harper’s Bazaar, which Adweek notes has managed to expand its circulation and rack up the most Pinterest followers of any other magazine. In the reader poll, Fast Company won for this category. Sports Illustrated’s Paul Fichtenbaum was Adweek‘s favorite EIC, while Glamour‘s Connie Anne Phillips won for publisher of the year.
As for the other categories, GQ and Playboy grabbed the prize for best lad mag from Adweek‘s staff and readers, respectively. People was the favorite for the celebrity-focused lot, though Closer got the nod from the readers in the same category. Kimye’s Vogue cover was not left out of the mix, winning the Adweek stamp of approval for best cover, while Sports Illustrated‘s bum-focused swimsuit issue was the reader’s choice. For the fashion set, Glamour beat out the rest and Nylon came in as a top pick for readers.
All in all, it’s safe to say it was an eventful year in the magazine world.
What do you think? Are Adweek‘s choices on-point or should there be a revote?
