Finding Purpose

Winning Magazine's Editor in Chief Katarina Kroslakova reflects on our new Purpose issue.

Having recently had the very great pleasure of interviewing Kylie Minogue, I can happily confirm she is as intoxicating and impressive as her reputation suggests. Ms Minogue is all class, empathy, sensibility, openness and self-deprecating wit. So when she was announced as the headline act to open Sydney WorldPride 2023 on February 24, there was no doubt as to who would grace the cover of Winning Magazine’s Purpose issue.

Our writer Gavin Scott previews one of Australia’s most anticipated events, from the epic parties to the pioneering cultural program, and speaks to the identities making it all happen.

Given this is our Purpose issue, we searched far and wide for creators, brands, trends and destinations that best represent persistence, intention and principle right now.

We look at the fashion brands creating good through embracing circular initiatives, and road-test the cars designed to change the game. We ask how architecture can make us feel good, and find the innovators in the Australian wine scene who pursued their singular passion despite multiple challenges.

Just in time for entertaining season, we offer some delicious — and spectacular — recipes from Australia’s baking sweetheart Emelia Jackson. In case you need something postprandial after overindulging, we’re pleased to guide you through some super-flavourful fermented and infused tonics.

Plus we have a destination deep-dive into a post-lockdown Kyoto; we profile the artist working to save our sea life; we check out the new hotels revivifying heritage buildings; and much more.

Thank you for embracing our relaunched magazine with such love and loyalty. We wish all our readers, advertising partners and creative teams a safe and happy holiday season, and look forward to sharing more Winning Magazine with you in 2023.
