Cosmo‘s Search For Media Men Excludes Writers, Editors — And Just About Everybody Else


Cosmopolitan‘s search for its 6th annual Media Man won’t include the New York TimesWarren St. John, Hud Morgan of Men’s Vogue, Men’s Health‘s David Zinczenko nor, for that matter, the editor of this blog. Why not? Because it’s only open to ad execs. Not only that, they have to be “working with Cosmopolitan Magazine.”

The official rules:

To Enter: Starting June 26, 2006 visit, fill out the online entry form and submit a digital photograph of your favorite media man (could be yourself) by July 20, 2006. Nominees must be employees of recognized advertising agencies working with Cosmopolitan Magazine. Or, if you don’t have a photo, your Cosmo rep will stop by and take his/your picture (Cosmo reps can take photos of potential entrants only if the potential entrants reside in the same city.)

Though if it were open to everyone, we have a good idea who ForbesJames Brady would be voting for.
