Canvas magazine

From 1 June, Canvas and Weekend magazines will be combined into a new bumper magazine to give audiences all their favourite content in one place.

In the same larger size as NZME's suite of leading magazines, Canvas will have all your favourite features and columnists from the two magazines combined. 

New content includes an expanded Up Front section with the newest in fashion, eating, dining, travel, driving, and what to do on the weekend.  Canvas will also feature two pages of travel each week and expanded food content.

Alongside great reads is a substantial living section with restaurant, wine and brunch reviews and mouth-watering recipes by Annabel Langbein, along with fashion and intelligent beauty content.

"We are unashamedly and deliberately the premium lifestyle magazine. Whether it's about death, sex, food, sport, love, culture or  issues that make headlines, our focus remains on publishing quality long-form feature journalism about New Zealanders and championing diversity, Canvas provides readers with a meaningful,  satisfying, engaging and diverting weekend escape."
