The September issue is upon us and features all the latest industry goings on, big features, people profiles, deep-dives on creative, social photos and more.

We hand-pick each agency and the cover of the year will be voted for by readers at the end of 2018. This month's edition is a special flip-reverse magazine with two covers designed by creative agency Saatchi & Saatchi.

Conveying both concepts of Power 50 and Top 30 Emerging Leaders on one front cover was not the easiest brief, so when CEO Anthony Gregorio was quick to suggest a flip cover, it was a no–brainer.

This year's Power 50 looks at those who have the power and influence to shape key parts of the ecosystem, particularly now in this fascinating post–media reform era. With the impact of media reform changes coming into full swing, there has surely never been a more electrifying time to be part of the landscape as it evolves around us.

The issue also includes our Top 30 Emerging Leaders who hold the burgeoning power to one day dethrone the big business movers and shakers of today.

In addition to the two main features we speak with self–professed news junkie and ACCC chairperson, Rod Sims, who talks mergers, media, power, and finding the truth.

Forget media reform, it's the rise of Facebook, Amazon, Netflix, and Google, that is far more profound, representing serious change for traditional media companies, News Corp's Siobhan McKenna tells AdNews.

We unpack Publicis and the Power of One; explore Clemenger Melbourne’s work for Aboriginal Victoria’s Deadly Questions, review booze ads – and much more.

As a reminder, next month is our special New Zealand edition. From Meet the Team and Spotlight to The Work and Campaign Review, all will feature the brightest minds from the region. Our front cover will also be designed by a leading local agency.

In the magazine’s Spotted photo feature we are also calling for your team photos.

Be it agency, publisher, media owner, ad tech or a marketing team, as long as you’re New Zealand based we want you to send us a recent high res image of your team so we can get a look at the beauty behind the brains. They’ll be bonus points for office pets included.

Email your team photo here and make sure you put 'NZ PHOTO' in the subject line.
