Dear Advertising Director,

By now, we hope you’ve enjoyed our Spring/Summer 2012 25th Anniversary issue of PhotoMedia with Albert Watson's "Golden Boy" portrait on the cover. It has been a particularly proud year for us having reached that 25-year publishing milestone. As we continue to present compelling editorial and visuals, PhotoMedia has been a hit with our readers, while an increase in circulation in the last three years from 23,000 to 29,000 copies with expanded and more targeted distribution has benefitted advertisers.

In 2012, PhotoMedia proudly won its EIGHTH Maggie Award (from three nominations — that makes 30 total in the last 13 years!), and also received its TENTH consecutive APEX Grand Award (and 11th in 13 years — a unique achievement) and 14th APEX Award of Excellence.

Also, our new PhotoMedia website, photomediaonline.com, went live in 2011 featuring a major redesign with enhanced navigation and functionality, and continues to evolve. Ask me about new online advertising opportunities, which will be available for those interested. Many years of PhotoMedia's archives of high-quality editorial are now tagged, categorized and easily searchable, while new content gets posted regularly to keep our visitors returning. Please explore the site — you'll be impressed! You can also conveniently access comprehensive advertising information while there.

Our upcoming Fall/Holiday 2012 issue will offer great features including our 2012 PhotoMedia Photography Person of the Year story along with our regular columns and departments, which will surely keep our readers absorbed from cover to cover. Maximize your year-end sales goals and connect with those prospective customers while they're in the mode to consider your products and/or services as holiday gifts or capital equipment purchases for annual tax write-offs!
