Celebrating 12 years as Pittsburgh’s best magazine

OUR MISSION is to produce the nation’s best magazine journalism. Our readers — the region’s wealthiest and most influential leaders in every major sector— deserve no less. Their time is precious, and we don’t waste it. They recognize quality, and we deliver it with unparalleled writers, artists and photographers who have more than 40 Pulitzer Prizes and nominations.

A SUPERIOR REGIONAL MAGAZINE: Winner of the prestigious Folio Eddie Awards — the global magazine industry’s biggest competition for editorial excellence — Pittsburgh Quarterly has also been judged to be western Pennsylvania’s best magazine 12 years in a row by the Golden Quill Awards, decided by out-​of-​town journalists. Each issue is packed with award-​winning features, with more than 30 distinctive stories every quarter.

COMMITMENT TO OUR ADVERTISERS: You will reach Pittsburgh’s top echelon of decision makers and purchasers in the publication with the longest shelf life in Pennsylvania. You deliver outstanding quality. So do we. Unlike other leaf-​through/​throw-​away publications, Pittsburgh Quarterly engages, challenges and entertains the region’s most powerful and decisive citizens. In an age of mediocre media, Pittsburgh Quarterly is a standout exception.

Who reads Pittsburgh Quarterly?

Our sweet spot — which other media outlets can’t reach — is the very top segment of the demographic scale. PQ subscribers comprise the wealthiest, most influential media audience in western Pennsylvania. Their tremendous purchasing power is largely immune to economic cycles. Not surprisingly, our audience is also the region’s most educated. Our readers are Pittsburgh’s key decision makers and opinion leaders in every sector of the regional economy.
