ellie_NMA.jpg You see that shiny elephant sculpture to the right? That's the National Magazine Award we won for General Excellence tonight (100,000 to 250,000 circulation). These pointy beauties, otherwise known as Ellies, are awarded annually in New York by the American Society of Magazine Editors. They're basically the Oscars of the magazine world. Winning General Excellence? That's like winning Best Picture.

(Check out this year's National Magazine Award-winning issues here, here, and here.)

Congratulations to all the nominees in our category: Foreign Policy, Paste, Garden & Gun, and Martha Stewart Weddings

UPDATE: This, of course, just proves that reader-supported journalism really works. We hope you enjoy your Ellie!
