CityMag’s 2022 40 Under 40 edition is on streets now

Alongside the impressive stories of young South Australians succeeding, our latest print edition explores the good and bad that comes from failure.

Failure visits upon us all at some point in our lifetime. It should be easy to talk about.

It exists in minor moments, like a pizza you’ve left in the oven too long (a la Emmaline Zanelli and Kurt Bosecke’s artwork above, from our cover), and in major – the feeling of missed opportunities or letting loved ones down.

Each year, CityMag dedicates an entire edition to the successes of young South Australian leaders, when we publish in print the full list of winners from Solstice Media’s 40 under 40 (the event is tonight – are you coming?). We’ve done this three years running now, but to continue to tell these stories without also giving due attention to the underside of success would be disingenuous.

In our 2022 winter edition, we’ve paired our 40 Under 40 section with ruminations on failure – both the good and bad that can come from it.

When the magazine hits streets on Friday, 10 June, you’ll find stories on how chefs come back from bad reviews, the opportunity South Australia is missing by not acting quicker to legalise recreational cannabis, why an Adelaide photographer is owning his film failures in a new book, and what it’s like to pitch yourself when the only thing standing between your business and success is other people’s money.

We also sent CityMag reporter Angela Skujins to a meditation retreat to learn the benefits quieting her mind, and InDaily reporter Stephanie Richards explains South Australia’s failure to raise the age of criminal liability, and how that might soon change.

There will also be a lot of CityMag staples – the best new eateries and drinkeries in and around the city, upcoming arts events, and reporter Kate Richards even spent a night getting to know Wright Street adult arcade i Darts a little better (flaming cocktails and all).

All of these stories will appear online in the months to come, but we hope you’ll pick us up in print wherever you find us in the wild and spend some time flicking through our pages.
