John Brown wins at the Eddie & Ozzie Awards
John Brown is very proud to announce that Stockmann Magazine’s Spring issue won Best Cover Design at the prestigious Eddie & Ozzie Awards – one of the biggest, globally-recognised magazine media awards – which took place last night in New York City.
The winning cover from Stockmann Magazine, shows legendary Finnish actor Seela Sella’s bold image, and was the talk of Finland when it was published in spring 2018. Seela Sella’s photographs were featured on the cover of Stockmann Magazine, online on Stockmann’s inspirational content hub, and were posted on the company’s social media platforms. The story and pictures earned a big reaction at the time of publication, with Finnish national TV channel MTV3 featuring Sella in a nine-minute slot, crediting the magazine and the John Brown crew.
“We were looking for a courageous role model for the spring cover”, says John Brown Helsinki’s editor in chief Jenni Lieto, who was present at the awards ceremony in New York. “The theme was ‘Be Bold’, so we wanted to feature a person who would bring charisma and substance to our content and be an innovative but fitting match with the client.
“I am immensely happy about the successful cooperation between Stockmann and the John Brown Media team. This is a world-class award for world-class content.”
“We are very proud and happy with this recognition! Stockmann Magazine’s mission is to give our customers inspiring and high-quality content, and a win at a global competition is a sign that we are indeed on the right track”, says Stockmann’s CCO Anna Salmi.
The cover, feature and campaign pictures were photographed by Marko Rantanen. The art director was John Brown’s Simon Robinson.
Stockmann Magazine was launched in 2017 and is produced by John Brown Media in Finland. The John Brown team consist of local and international, top industry professionals.
