What We're About

Allied Press Magazines publishes a broad selection of award-winning titles.

Our magazines cater to a wide range of reader interests, connecting with gardening enthusiasts, rugby fans and classic car connoisseurs across the nation. With an ever-growing catchment south of Christchurch, our lifestyle magazine, 03, shares the best of life in the South Island and is free to all readers.

No matter what publication you’re reading, we pride ourselves on the quality of our content and the engagement we have with our readers, supporting Kiwis in what they love and providing premier platforms to share their stories.

Allied Press Magazines is part of the privately owned media company, Allied Press Ltd, which publishes New Zealand’s oldest and last independent daily newspaper, the Otago Daily Times, as well numerous community newspapers across the South Island. Allied Press also runs Dunedin’s regional television station, a range of commercial websites, and offers commercial printing facilities.
