Friday November 4, 2022 the third edition of the Mag Inspiration Day will take place in B.Amsterdam. Mag Inspiration Day is the event for magazine makers.

    The Mag Inspiration Day is organized by the Magazine Media Association (MMA) and the Dutch Association of Journalists (NVJ). This unique and successful collaboration took place earlier in 2018 and 2020 and was set up to offer magazine professionals the opportunity to gain knowledge and inspiration about the magazine industry for a day.

    Media trends and top speakers

    Magazine makers become during the May Inspiration Day updated on the latest media trends, can network and be inspired by top national and international speakers. The most important pillars of the industry are central here: editing and design, both in print and digital.

    Mercurs are awarded again

    New this year is that the day will be concluded with the presentation of three Mercurs: for Magazinebrand, Reportage and Artdirection. These categories are directly related to the visitors of the day and their daily work. During the program, sessions will be devoted to the nominated cases and the nominated work will be exhibited at the location. This year, this format was chosen for the Mercurs and the magazine gala. Harriet Schier of the MMA: “This is how we are going to award these three Mercurs this year. A definitive new set-up has not been chosen, we will look at it again next year.”

    Registration for the Mercurs starts at the beginning of July and has a deadline in mid-September.

    Save the date: November 4

    More information about the program and ticket sales will follow after the summer, but Friday 4 November 2022 can now be noted in the agenda!

    Thomas Bruning, general secretary NVJ: “Investing in yourself is essential in a rapidly changing media world. Leaf makers are happy about this day.

    Exchanging knowledge within the magazine industry

    Harriët Schrier, director of MMA: “With the Mag Inspiration Day we want to stimulate the exchange of knowledge and inspiration within the magazine industry and offer visitors the opportunity to network.
