Think Academy Awards, red carpet, black tie. In the magazine world, top honors come not as Oscars, but as Ellies, and they're awarded by the American Society of Magazine Editors. At tonight's National Magazine Awards in New York Mother Jones won the 2007 award for General Excellence (100,000 to 250,000 circulation). (Check out the year's issues here.)
We beat out the respectable company of Foreign Policy, Paste, Radar, and Philadelphia. More on the winners and nominees (Mother Jones was also nominated for Lana Slezic's photo essay on the women of Afghanistan) here.
And thanks to all our readers for your support. Expect more excellence to come!
