A lot has changed since CSME was founded in 1990, notably keeping our ad-edit guidelines up to date with current practices and industry needs. With paid initiatives keeping many titles in business, from sponsored content, native advertising, bloggers, advertorials and other influences testing editorial integrity, magazine brands have to walk a fine line.
Is it still possible to maintain a completely autonomous editorial voice, independent of advertising influence? Or are there lines that can be gently toed across? Join us for what’s sure to be a lively discussion about where to draw the line.
Panelists include Matthew Blackett, publisher, creative director, and co-founder of Spacing, CSME Editor’s Choice Awards small-circulation Magazine of the Year winner, 2015, Jennifer Weatherhead Harrington, editor and co-founder of Travel & Style Magazine and social media manager at Hello! Canada & Hello! US, and Marcia Ruby, publisher and creative director of Alternatives Journal.
Moderated by Allan Britnell, managing editor of Renovation Contractor, a finalist for Trade Magazine of the Year at the KRW Awards, 2013, 2014, and 2015.
