How we chose this is­sue’s cover

Canadian Geographic - - YOUR SPACE -

Is­sues of Cana­dian Geo­graphic with a bear or a wolf on the cover sell re­ally well at news­stands. But some­how it doesn’t feel right to put one of those preda­tors on the front ev­ery time. So we con­tinue to search for other cover sub­jects that seem to res­onate with news­stand buy­ers. One such sub­ject? Dra­matic Cana­dian land­scapes, par­tic­u­larly those fea­tur­ing ice­bergs. We of­fered up four spec­tac­u­lar scenic shots for the Oc­to­ber 2016 is­sue’s cover vote, and if the re­sults are any in­di­ca­tion, the north­ern lights trump ice­bergs. Op­tion two was the ru­n­away win­ner with 49 per cent of the tally (op­tions one, three and four re­ceived nine, 14 and 28 per cent of the vote). With such an over­whelm­ing out­come, there’s ab­so­lutely no rea­son not to heed the ad­vice of our cover vot­ers. Now all that re­mains is for news­stand buy­ers to show a sim­i­lar pref­er­ence.
