The Publishers Australia judges comments in announcing Treadlie magazine as Launch of the Year:
"Great designed special interest magazine. What Europe is used to - great to see it here. Who said cycling was all lycra & clip ons; breath of fresh air for hipsters and green hell raisers everywhere. A real surprise – really niche but beautifully executed. Makes you want to ride a bike!"
Hard to believe but its almost a year since the first Treadlie hit the stands! The feedback from our readers since our launch issue has been amazing and now, just to put the icing on the cake, we've had some industry love as well!
Our weekend was one long giddy bike ride after the news on Friday evening that Treadlie had won Launch of the Year at the 2011 Publisher's Australia Excellence Awards.
Described as the most coveted magazine industry awards in Australia the Publisher's Australia Excellence Awards recognise outstanding achievements in all areas of magazine publishing including editorial and journalism, content and design, publishing success and advertising and marketing.
A prestigous panel of judges from all sectors of the publishing industry select winners in each category. The category Launch of the Year recognises the most successful launch of a publication and we couldn't be more pleased to have been selected as the winner in this category. We've had a fabulous first year exceeding even our own high expectations and are now looking forward to bigger and better things in our second year!
Here, for your enjoyment, we revisit our launch issue cover and give you a sneak peek at the next issue, out December 2nd!
