*Competition has now closed*
It’s competition time at The Cosy Traveller – and if you’re a magazine addict like me, you won’t want to miss it! I’m giving away ten magazine subscriptions to any title available from Zinio. 
I’ve long been completely addicted to magazines. Whether it was Top of the Pops or Heat, my pocket money would always go on the latest issue which I would quickly devour before sitting in boredom in wait for the next one. Nowadays, to keep my travel bug restrained, I’m subscribed to both National Geographic Traveller and Lonely Planet, with their arrival the highlight of my month.

What is Zinio?
 I was trying to look for the best way to sum them up. Google calls it a ‘multi-platform distribution service for digital magazines’, but I think a ‘giant newsstand in the clouds’ also works. 

It has over 5,500 magazine titles available to download to any device, whether it be your computer, mobile or tablet. While you can purchase subscriptions or single issues, it’s also possible to read thousands of articles on a range of topics online – completely free!

Their free app allows you to browse on the go wherever you are, completely revolutionizing the magazine industry. I downloaded it this morning to my S2 and got completely absorbed in their travel articles, which is perfect for my stupidly long commute to work every day. It also means that you can pick up hard-to-find titles wherever you are in the world.

What kind of magazines?
All 5,500 magazines can be viewed here, but some of the titles you may be interested in include: Lonely Planet Traveller, Yachting World, Conde Nast Traveller UK or Travel Photography Made Easy. 

They also have a pretty epic feature for those who like variety. Their Z-Pass allows customers to purchase any three magazines for just $5 a month. The next month, you can choose to keep the titles or mix them up! It’s a great way to test out new magazines or ones you’ve had your eye on for a while.
