Best Magazine Cover of the Year Contest

A good magazine cover not only increases issue sales but also remains in the readers’ mind. Since 2009, ANER has organized The Best Magazine Cover of the Year Contest in order to recognize the work put on by art editors, designers and journalists to make magazine covers.

Publishers send their magazine covers and a committee selects 16 magazine covers that are then displayed on a purpose built website. The Best Magazine Cover of the Year is selected  via Internet voting. The Awards Ceremony takes place during the ANER Magazine Forum.
