Time Out Delhi, Paprika Media’s guide for knowledge, information and events completes its first Anniversary in April 2008. Time Out, an entertainment and lifestyle magazine, comprehensively guides readers through the fascinating range of entertainment and cultural opportunities that exist in the city.
Pallav Moitra, CEO, Paprika Media, said, “We are delighted the way Time Out Delhi has made its mark in the capital in its one year of existence. We feel, just like in London, New York, Mumbai and many other cities of the world, Time Out Delhi will help readers in knowing and enjoying their city in a better way.”
Time Out Delhi, a fortnightly, is priced at Rs 30. The objective of Time Out Delhi has been to give Delhiites a complete list of options with detailed previews and reviews on all lifestyle segments.
Having completed a year in Delhi, Paprika Media is now planning to widen the magazine’s horizons by establishing editions in other metros. The magazine already has a Mumbai edition. Today, the magazine has established several editions worldwide like New York, Paris, and Dubai. Time Out has over 22 editions internationally and over 50 other publications as well.
The magazine was first launched in London in 1968 by Tony Elliott. He used £75 given to him by an aunt as a birthday present. The first issue of Time Out appeared on the streets of London as a single poster-sized sheet, folded to A5 and costing one shilling. The magazine’s aim was to provide Londoners with comprehensive listings of events and activities, and accurate reviews and reports on what’s on in the capital. The first issue sold 5,000 copies, and a second issue followed three weeks later.
