ShortList UAE covers the latest entertainment, dining, fashion, sport and travel in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. With twin websites, daily newsletters, six social media channels and one magazine distributing 70,000 copies every Wednesday, ShortList UAE reaches both men and women aged 20-50.
From September 2015, ShortList launched a weekly edition in Dubai and Abu Dhabi as a license with APP Media Group, a division of ITP Publishing.
Joe Mackertich, current editor, states that ‘it’s important to me that people pick up ShortList and feel enlivened, informed and flattered by it. It’s a mainstream magazine, but to the reader it never feels like a product aimed at everyone. It’s for them.’
ShortList launched its website, shortlist.com, in September 2010 and by March 2018 had 1.8 million monthly unique users, globally. The website continues to publish content, despite the print edition's closure.
ShortList was a significant ‘pioneer of the “freemium” publishing model – providing high quality, premium content for free to,’ the metropolitan audience.
ShortList described its audience as “the Met Set” (short for the Metropolitan Set) - ‘who are a very different, very specific set of people [... and] are probably the most influential demographic in Britain today’.
ShortList was published by Shortlist Media Ltd, which also owns Stylist, Emerald Street and Mr Hyde.
ShortList was a free weekly magazine published in London, launched in 2007, the magazine had the biggest circulation of any men's lifestyle magazine in Britain. ShortList was published by Shortlist Media Ltd., who in 2009 launched Stylist, a similar magazine for women. The magazine's print edition was discontinued in 2018, due to declining advertising revenue. Around 20 staff were estimated to have lost their jobs as a result of its closure. The magazine released its last issue on December 20, 2018.
ShortList was launched on 20 September 2007 with the slogan ‘For men with more than one thing on their minds’, to differentiate it from the "lads' mags" of the time such as FHM and Loaded.
ShortList was distributed free every Thursday in London, Manchester, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Newcastle, Leeds, Dundee and Birmingham.
The shortlist was announced on 11 September. Jury chairman Peter Stothard praised the selection by stating that "[w]hat made it really worthwhile was finding we had half a dozen extraordinary and exhilarating pieces of prose." He described the jury's path towards the shortlist as an arduous path of reading and rereading. In the end, he said, "[i]t was the power and depth of prose that settled most of the judges' debates and we found the six books most likely to last and to repay future rereading. These are very different books but they all show a huge and visible confidence in the novel's place in the renewing of our words and our ideas."
