Mag+ announces its three finalists in its Creativity Contest

Mag+ today announced its three finalists in its Creativity Contest and are now allowing web readers to vote for their favorite publishing idea.

The three finalists are Ryan Hoback from the US:

Black Book Brewing has launched a ‘Tussle’ campaign for home brewers to find the brewery’s next ale. As part of this initiative, they have created an iPad magazine that tells the brewery’s backstory and provides an engaging and exploratory experience designed to enlighten users about the world of home brewing. Through storytelling, photography and interactive design, this magazine gives people the chance to learn, share and become part of something special.
Diana Ortscheid and Marie Stübner from Sweden:
VintageMUM – a vintage and shabby chic inspired digital crafting & lifestyle magazine with a Scandinavian touch. We want to inspire the reader through cosy pictures and smart crafting for the whole family. With VintageMUM you will discover how easily you can create and decorate your home by following our thorough guides and illustrations. We give you crafting with a touch of love…
And Natasha Mead from New Zealand:
Milk is a DIY fashion magazine exclusively for the iPad. Each issue features 6-9 new and easy to follow tutorials ranging in cost and time required. Taking it’s cues from street style and high fashion trends alike, Milk is a source of both inspiration and instruction.
After the break you can see the three demonstration videos, or you can view them on the Mag+ website, where you can vote for your favorite. Voting closes at 3PM EST on December 16th. The winner gets the $2,500 publishing fee waived, essentially launching the winner into the publishing biz. (Yes, you should have entered!)

The three finalist's entries can also be viewed live on your iPad if you have downloaded the free Mag+ Reviewer app.
