Instituton that would publish my magazine
An institution that would publish my magazine in IPC media, IPC media is the publishes NME, which is the magazine which is most like the magazine i would like to make. IPC is a wholly owned subsidiary of time inc., is a consumer magazine and digital publisher in the United Kingdom, with a large portfolio selling over 350 million copies each year.
IPC Engages with almost half of all UK adult prints and their website has reached over 28million members, due to this i will have the benefit of the experience with this company which would benefit the making and marketing of my magazine.
History of the company:
Pinpointing exactly how far Time Inc UK's (formerly IPC Media) roots stretch back into the midst of publishing history is a complicated business. The International Publishing Corporation Ltd was formed in 1963 following the merger of the UK's three leading magazine publishers - George Newnes, Odhams Press and Fleetway Publications - who came together with the Mirror Group to form the International Publishing Corporation (IPC). And IPC Magazines was created five years later, in 1968. But those three original magazine businesses each had their own illustrious history, having been established in 1881, 1890 and 1880 respectively, with a number of the titles they launched in the late 19th Century still being published today under the IPC umbrella. And when The Field, launched in 1853, joined the IPC stable in 1994 following the acquisition of Harmsworth Magazines, it saw our family tree reach back even further. IPC was acquired by Time Warner in 2001 and was renamed Time Inc. UK in 2014 after Time Inc. acquired the company in connection with its spinoff from Time Warner.
