Take a Bow!

Many congratulations to our old friend Modern Drummer magazine

Their rockstar of a digital publication nabbed them a place among the prestigious Folio: Ozzie Awards Finalists for 2018.

Who are they?

Modern Drummer is 40 years of publishing history in the music industry, all wrapped up into a sleek publication – glossy in the stands and gorgeous on the web.

Built in WordPress, Modern Drummer uses ZEEN101’s own Anvil suite of products to great effect.

IssueM allows them to publish their articles packaged in an issue just like their print magazine, without complicating their workflow.

Leaky Paywall gives them the means to attract readers by search and by social with just enough free content to tempt them in and not enough to go bankrupt. (And also to run a devastatingly effective Facebook page in their own, issue-based style.)

Plus, UniPress allows them to publish across devices without any additional effort.

All-in-all, Modern Drummer magazine is everything a digital publication ought to be.

And their recent recognition in the Folio Awards just proves it.

What is that?

Every year Folio Magazine presents the Eddie and Ozzie Awards for “excellence in editorial and design.”

Often touted as one of the most prestigious awards in the publishing community, the Ozzie goes to the best publication in its particular category. Every year, more than 2000 hopefuls wait to hear if they’ve placed. 

This year, Modern Drummer has been named a finalist for overall excellence in the App/Digital Edition category.

The winner will be announced soon but, as with any award, it’s an honor just to be nominated.

Rock on, Modern Drummer!
