    POY announces partnership with Bauer Media

    With the identity of the winners of the 2015 Product of the Year Awards soon to be revealed, it gives us great pleasure to announce an exclusive media partnership with Bauer Media – publishers of Australia’s highest selling magazine Woman’s Day. With a massive 2.11 million readers every week, Woman’s Day reaches more consumers than any other weekly magazine. The partnership, which also extends to other titles including Yours and Recipes+, is an exciting opportunity for winning companies to engage their readership. Product of the Year Director Sarah Connelly said the partnership, which also saw the magazine’s Editor in chief Fiona Connolly join the judging panel, was a great opportunity for winners to leverage their win. “We’re thrilled to be working with the Bauer Media, and in particular Fiona and her team, who produce these magazines,” Ms Connelly said. “It’s no secret that conditions are challenging, so this partnership will provide a platform for winners to highlight their product and the fact that it has been chosen as Australia’s most innovative new entrant onto supermarket shelves.” As part of the partnership, the winners will feature in a double page spread in the magazine which is published directly after the Awards Night on 12th February, 2015. A reader giveaway of 50 prize hampers featuring winning products will run in conjunction with the feature. The Bauer Media sales team have also created an exclusive and compelling advertising proposal for Product of the Year winners. This will be distributed to all winners as soon as the research results have been completed. Woman’s Day Editor in Chief Fiona Connolly said being crowned Product of the Year gives brands added cachet and stamp of approval for consumers when they fill their trolleys each week. “Woman’s Day readers are extremely interested in new products, and always looking for innovation and variety when they shop,” Ms Connolly said. “We are excited to be working with Product of the Year and we are looking forward to helping the winners expose their products to the readership of all three magazines,” she said. Ms Connelly will notify all winners in the upcoming weeks, which will give companies plenty of time to start planning their PR and marketing campaigns post Awards night on 12th February, 2015. Bauer will also contact all winners to discuss exclusive advertising packages.
