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!

THE TRUTH...

is the first thing despots go after. An unwavering commitment to it is probably what draws you to Mother Jones' journalism. And as we're seeing in the US and the world around, authoritarians seek to poison the discourse and the way we relate to each other because they can't stand people coming together around a shared sense of the truth—it's a huge threat to them.

Which is also a pretty great way to describe Mother Jones' mission: People coming together around the truth to hold power accountable.

And right now, we need to raise about $400,000 from our online readers over the next two months to hit our annual goal and make good on that mission. Read more about the information war we find ourselves in and how people-powered, independent reporting can and must rise to the challenge—and please support our team's truth-telling journalism with a donation if you can right now.
