NEW YORK, March 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- As they close out a successful Women's History Month and embark into April's Earth Day, VIVmag, the original all-digital luxury lifestyle magazine for women, is making greener living even more rewarding with the launch of its "Greener Life" subscription contest to follow the release of its new March/April 2011 Green Issue.

Now through April 30, new VIVmag member subscribers will be entered to win several must-have prizes each week and can get a free preview of the interactive new Green Issue featuring cover girl and "Hot in Cleveland" star Jane Leeves, along with a full slate of editorial features to help you live greener with style.

In addition to the free preview, new VIVmag members will enjoy a special discounted subscription rate of just $20 for a full year's worth of complete access to each issue of this dynamic, digital lifestyle magazine. Every new subscription member is also instantly entered for a chance to win one of multiple VIVmag "Greener Life" must-have prize packs, which include organic and green lifestyle products featured in the March/April issue, all designed to help make living green easier, more convenient and fashionable.

VIVmag fans can enter the contest by subscribing and are invited to share photos and stories of how they lead a greener life on the updated VIVmag Facebook or new VIVmagTumblr pages.

"Our annual Green Issue has become a VIVmag brand trademark, and this is the perfect opportunity to say thank you to our loyal readers and welcome new VIVmag fans into the all-digital community," said VIVmag's Vice President of Brand Marketing, Adrienne A. Wallace. "Living greener is something I think all of us aspire to do. With this contest and the practical advice and guidance in our latest issue, VIV Women can make environmental consciousness a part of their daily lives."

By virtue of the digital reading experience powered by the Zinio UNITY™ multimedia, universal reading platform, VIVmag readers have already taken the first step toward greener living. Wallace estimates that VIVmag subscription members alone save some 36 million pages of paper each year by choosing to read green, accessing more than 350,000 subscription issues of the 170-page bi-monthly publication through the free VIVmag app for iPad, as well as the iPhone, Mac and PC.

"VIVmag has always been about promoting overall awareness and helping women to live their best life," Wallace said, adding that last year's Green Issue featuring Ed Begley, Jr. and Rachelle Carson earned VIVmag the honor of being named the Leading Digital Edition at min's Editorial & Design Awards. "We've built a strong track record for delivering award-winning content and design to our growing readership," Wallace said.

In addition to promoting the "Greener Life" contest through its website, VIVmag will also harness its social media presence and its expanding VIVMaven Affiliate Network of bloggers and online influencers. VIVMavens will feature exclusive photos and excerpts from the Green Issue on their own blogs and social media feeds and cross-promote the contest to their own readership.
