Media Information 2023

INTERFACE offers a powerful and effective advertising opportunity for you to reach schools and teachers across New Zealand. We understand and connect with the education market.

For the last 15 years, we’ve built up a loyal and trusting readership. You can take advantage of this through our popular digital magazine, e-newsletter, digital marketing, website, and social media channels.

Below is information for 2023. If you have any questions or would like to discuss options, please contact Editor Greg Adams at or call 027 255 1301.

Publication dates 2023

There are six magazines in 2023. Publication dates are:

  • Issue 116, February 2023: 15 February
  • Issue 117, April: 22 March
  • Issue 118, May: 3 May   (this is our INTERFACEXpo event issue, which will be printed for delegates)
  • Issue 119, July: 21 June
  • Issue 120, August: 9 August
  • Issue 121, November: 8 November

The Reader Briefing e-newsletter goes out approximately one week before each magazine, as a heads up to what’s inside (plus some latest news).

Advertising rates 2023


The standard costs for advertising in the magazine are:

  • Quarter page @ $1195 + gst
  • Half @ $1500 + gst
  • Full @ $1995 + gst

These are one-off, casual prices. If there was a series of bookings, discounts can be applied.

Value add-ons: With an advertising booking, we always explore ways to include value add-ons as part of any package that bring several of our promotional channels into play, such as additional editorial, entries in the e-newsletter and diary, web banners, posts on our website and social media channels.

Reader Briefing e-newsletter

You can include content in the e-newsletter, as follows:

  • Text entry (approx. 25 words) with link @ $500 + gst
  • Sponsorship of the e-newsletter (which includes advert in the masthead, text entry and link, and additional recognition as the sponsor) @ $1200 + gst

Web banner (on

We can place a web banner on our website. These usually run for the cycle of a magazine (but the duration is negotiable). Often, we incorporate banners as part of a wide package but they can be placed separately. The cost is $450 + gst per magazine cycle.


In 2023, we are launching a direct digital marketing option, where we can send out an exclusive email message on behalf of an advertiser. This will be limited to one or two a term, so as not to inundate our readers and dilute the impact. This goes out to our entire database. The cost to send a message is $2,500 + gst.

Reach and numbers

The magazine link, e-newsletter and EDM are distributed to our reader database, which is currently around 57,000 school educators. The opening rate for the magazine and e-newsletter are proving to be pretty steady, around 38-40 per cent. We believe this provides wide exposure to the school market.

Content creation

If you are unable to provide it, we are normally able to assist with the creation of advertising artwork and/or editorial. Please ask and we can talk through the options.
