Posted on: No Comments

The rise of the tablet has opened up many exciting opportunities (check out our very own iPad app for evidence of this), and this is particularly true in the world of magazines and publishing.

Most impressive in this realm is Zinio – a digital magazine subscription service and app which offers thousands of top magazines from around the world. You can browse and purchase subscriptions or single issues instantly from your computer or mobile device to read wherever and whenever you like.

We’ve teamed up with Zinio to give away 10 digital magazine subscriptions to some randomly-chosen lucky winners. You can select whichever publication you like – but we know that fans are all music nuts, so maybe our humble suggestions of something like Rolling Stone, Billboard or Guitar Player might be just the ticket?

And if you don’t win? No need to worry. Zinio has lots of great deals to fuel your music magazine addiction – including their brand new ‘Z-Pass’, a great deal which allows you to get 3 new magazines for $5 every month (and you can keep the same 3 or swap your titles every month).
