Hooray For Us!

We don’t have Academy Awards here in magazine-land, but we do have the National Magazine Awards.  Last Year MoJo won the award for general excellence in our circulation category (that’s 100,000-250,000, if you’re curious), and this year we’ve been nominated for three awards, the first time in our history we’ve gotten that many nominations.  One is for general excellence in print, one is for public service, and the third is for general excellence online, for which I take full credit, of course.

(Except, um, for the legion of other people who write, design, blog, administrate, and illustrate the 99% of it that has nothing to do with me.  But other than that, full marks, baby!)

The full list of nominations is here.  Congrats to everyone nominated, and special congratulations to Clara Jeffery and Monika Bauerlein, our co-editors here for the past three years.

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
