10 covers mark 10 years of ShortList magazine

Ella Dolphin: "This is an incredibly exciting time for our business."

Featuring 10 commemorative front covers with 10 high-profile cover stars: Anthony Joshua, Niall Horan, Jack Whitehall, Jeremy Corbyn, Craig David, Chris Froome, Jamie Vardy, Rami Malek, KSI (aka Olajide Olatunji) and Jamie Bell, the covers depict each star holding a distinctively different photo of them from 10 years ago, highlighting what a difference a decade makes.

The anniversary issue features interviews with each of its 10 cover stars. It also features an essay from editor Joe Mackertich on the evolution of the British male.

Over the past 10 years, its publisher Shortlist Media has built on the success of the freemium publishing model it spearheaded at launch, launching Stylist, shifting core revenue towards content partnerships with brands, and limiting its reliance on traditional display advertising. Family, the content studio from Shortlist Media, launched last November to connect advertisers with in-house expertise, and branded content revenues are now over 50% of the business – up from 37% at launch 12 months ago, say the publishers.

Ella Dolphin, CEO of Shortlist Media, said: “This is an incredibly exciting time for our business. 10 years of Shortlist Media has seen rapid and successful evolution across our print portfolio as we continue to transform our approach to accommodate the increasing demand for big, conceptual pieces that cut through with imaginative executions. The launch of Family last year is just one example of that, and as we continue into the second decade for our business, our ambition continues to be to create memorable content on every platform and channel that will surprise, thrill and engage the metropolitan audience we reach every single day.”

Joe Mackertich, editor of ShortList, said: “The brilliantly bright and talented team here at ShortList is the reason why the magazine has enjoyed such impressive growth and incredible success over the past decade. Our Anniversary Issue is designed to celebrate this as we look to the next 10 years of ShortList – with the 10 celebrity cover features aiming to showcase what a difference a decade can really make, both personally but also for a magazine that’s so in sync with the evolution of its metropolitan audience.”
