A hearty congratulations to Declan Moore and the team at National Geographic for taking home the award for Best Tablet Magazine of 2013 at last night’s ASME awards. According to ASME judges, Nat Geo won because of its in-depth reporting, world-class photography, beautiful design, smooth navigation, immersive interactivity, social media integration, plus engaging extras like a cheetah darting across a cover. They have gone to great lengths to integrate some of the most powerful features of Adobe Digital Publishing Suite (DPS) into their award winning app. Their hard work has paid off–Nat Geo has one of the highest global paid digital circulation of any magazine (330,000), and, according to Declan Moore, is seeing about 10% of their publishing revenue come from digital content.
If you’d like to hear firsthand how National Geographic transformed into a digital publishing powerhouse don’t miss Adobe’s Digital Publishing Summit on May 14 in NYC where Declan Moore will share this riveting story. Registration is open, RSVP here.
We’re also proud to report that of the five nominees in this category–National Geographic, Bloomberg Businessweek, Bon Appétit, Esquire and Money–three of them use Adobe Digital Publishing Suite (DPS) to publish their digital issues. Congrats to Bon Appétit and Esquire for their nominations.
