2512 is a monthly news magazine published in the Réunion. Its name refers to the size in square kilometres of this French overseas department, which is located in the Indian Ocean [fr [http://www.tarifmedia.com/article/article.cfm?idArticle=32885 « "2512" décrypte la société réunionnaise »] , "tarifMedia", 20 November 2006.] .

Editorial content

Columns

Besides the daily press, "2512" is the only generalist publication in the Réunion since a competitor that was founded several months before "2512" went bankrupt in December 2006. Its content varies greatly, even if certain columns do appear on a regular basis, such as those on the media or the environment.

Although the editorial staff is only small, it prepares a dossier on a particular theme each month. Subjects that have already been treated include: the mobility of the inhabitants of the Réunion beyond their island, their relationships to their bodies, and their driving habits.

Articles

In general, a lot of space in the dossier and in the rest of the magazine is dedicated to interviews with local, national and international personalities. The journalists of "2512" have thus already conducted interviews with Xavier Bertrand, Ibrahim Dindar, Nassimah Dindar, Joëlle Écormier, Maud Fontenoy, Meddy Gerville, Johnny Griffin, Olivier Ker Ourio, Patricia Machado, Émilie Minatchy, Nathalie Natiembé, Monique Orphé, Patrick Poivre d'Arvor, Gilbert Pounia, Didier Robert, Jacques Robert, Natasha Saint-Pier, Louis Schweitzer, Davy Sicard, Paul Vergès and Firmin Viry, the singer.

Description

The cover

Like those of many other news magazines such as Time, the cover of "2512" includes a frame with all important information. The logo appears at the top of the lefthand side of the page, just below the words “Lire intense” (English: intense reading), a play on words recalling the old slogan used to attract tourists to the Réunion: “L'île intense” (English: the intense island). The main title and an image occupy the rest of the page. The back cover is sold as advertising space.

The magazine

Each edition of "2512" is divided into three sections:
*"The review", which contains a diverse multitude of columns, with several important regular ones.
*"The dossier", which includes a series of articles and illustrations about the topic presented on the cover. This section begins with a double page photograph complemented by a summary.
*"The notebook", which concentrates on cultural news. This section begins with a mosaic of photographs spread across a double page.

Production

The publisher

The magazine is published by a printing house called L'Ours et la Prose, a limited liability company with shares worth 21,000 euros. It is located at 112 rue Sainte-Marie, in Saint-Denis. The three shareholders and co-directors are Thierry Caro, Stéphane Cazanove and David-Alexandre Techer [fr [http://www.societe.com/societe/l-ours-et-la-prose-o-p-490246048r.html « L'Ours et la Prose »] , Société.com.] , young inhabitants of the Réunion who were all 24 years old at the founding of the company.

An alumnus of the Institut d'études politiques in Lille, Caro is the editor-in-chief and the director of publication. Cazanove was previously a physical education teacher at a private college in the island’s capital city. He is the commercial director. Techer is the artistic director.

Printing and distribution

Most editions were printed at the Ile Maurice by the enterprise Précigraph, which is based at Pailles. In the meantime, the printer Ah-Sing in the Réunion has taken over the operation. "2512" is printed in a format which is slightly smaller than A4, and regularly has more than 80 pages.

The magazine targets those interested in culture, young people and public servants [fr [http://www.temoignages.re/article.php3?id_article=17368 « Pour les fonctionnaires et les étudiants »] , "Témoignages", 11 September 2006.] . It is sold for €3.50 and is distributed to all the principle points of sale in Réunion by the Agence réunionnaise de distribution de la presse, a local subsidiary of Nouvelles messageries de la presse parisienne which holds a monopoly over this market in Réunion.
