Our mission at Issuu is to connect publishers and readers all over the world around content that they love. Today, we launched Issuu Digital Sales – publishers can now sell digital access to their magazines and their fans will be able to buy them on any device, all on the Issuu platform.

We’re celebrating Digital Sales with our first-ever Golden Issue giveaway. Three lucky readers will win a once-in-a-lifetime experience from a few of your favorite publications – Ceremony, Man of Metropolis, and Sweet Paul. Our creators bring amazing independent visions to life with each issue they publish. We’re honoring that creative magic with a contest that gives everyone in our community the chance to meet them and experience this creativity firsthand.

Here’s a peek at what winning a Golden Issue could get you:

Ceremony: Dreamy California mini-moon

Amy Harrick, publisher of Ceremony Magazine, has spent 14 years sharing dream weddings in California. Now she’s taking her insider knowledge to curate the ultimate Southern California mini-moon. Our winner and guest will enjoy three nights at The Lodge at Torrey Pines in sunny La Jolla, relaxing and soaking up all that it has to offer. The lucky couple may choose to unwind at The Spa or tee it up at the world-famous Torrey Pines Golf Course, topping off the romance with a night out in a vintage limo to one of La Jolla’s renowned restaurants overlooking the water. Don’t want to forget this memorable weekend? Amy has arranged for one of her favorite photographers to do a shoot just for you.

Man of Metropolis: Close up with Man of Metropolis

Seth Travis has spent years directing creative for major consumer brands and now he’s doing it for his own magazine: Man of Metropolis. Seth will take our winner and a guest behind the scenes of his men’s lifestyle magazine in New York. Our winner and guest will be flown to New York and stay at a Man of Metropolis-approved hotel in Manhattan for three nights, and experience a high fashion editorial production firsthand. This means a day spent meeting Seth, the stylist, photographer, and models for an editorial piece being shot for their early 2018 issue. They’ll wrap the day with dinner and cocktails at the Polo Bar with Seth in true Man of Metropolis style.

Sweet Paul: Experience the sweet side of Brooklyn

Eating and making are the keys to a sweet life. Our winner and a guest will get to do just that with Sweet Paul in his adopted hometown of Brooklyn, New York. They’ll fly to New York and spend three nights in Brooklyn in one of Sweet Paul’s favorite hotels. Sweet Paul will host them for a day, helping them make a tote bag at the Brooklyn Shoe Space and dining at his favorite establishments, including Cafe Colette. The day will be topped off with a drink at the charming Maison Premiere. Brooklyn is definitely sweeter with Sweet Paul.
