VMLY&R: The last ever issue

VMLY&R’s ground-breaking porn magazine won a Grand Prix and Titanium for all the right reasons

VMLY&R bought the most iconic porn magazine in Poland, then published its last edition to transform the narrative for women everywhere.

They used this purchase as an opportunity to challenge the culture of sexism and gender inequality that the magazine had contributed to building. VMLY&R transformed Your Weekend into a conversation-sparking, ground-breaking magazine that promoted diverse and progressive narratives of femininity.

Teaming up with Wavemaker and Gazeta.pl, their client and leading Polish news portal, alongside Mastercard and BNP Paribas – two brands with a long-term commitment to empower women – VMLY&R created the magazine’s last issue, before shutting the magazine down entirely.
