'Glamour' Named Magazine of the Year


The winners of the 2010 National Magazine Awards were announced tonight at the annual awards gala at Alice Tully Hall in New York City. Glamour won top honors as Magazine of the Year. New York won four awards, including the award for General Excellence, 250,000 to 500,000 Circulation.

Other multiple-award winners were:

    * National Geographic, which won three awards, including General Excellence, Over 2 Million Circulation

    * The New Yorker, which also won three awards, including the award for Public Interest for Atul Gawande’s “The Cost Conundrum”

    * Wired, which won two awards, including the award for Design for the third year in a row

Known as the Ellies, for the Alexander Calder stabile “Elephant” given to each winner, the gala was attended by nearly 700 magazine editors and publishers. The evening was highlighted by the presentation of the Magazine Editors’ Hall of Fame Award to Anna Wintour, Editor-in-Chief of Vogue, by David Remnick, Editor of The New Yorker.

Among the awards presenters were two other member of the Magazine Editors’ Hall of Fame: Martha Stewart and Michael Kinsley. Guest presenters included actress Brooke Shields, fashion designer Cynthia Rowley, The Marriage Ref’s Tom Papa, New York Rangers left wing and former Vogue intern Sean Avery, and Lost’s Rebecca Mader.

Sponsored by the American Society of Magazine Editors in association with the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, the National Magazine Awards were established in 1966 and have long been recognized as the preeminent awards for magazine journalism in the United States.

"This year's Ellie finalists and winners fully display the vitality and power of magazine journalism," said Sid Holt, Chief Executive of American Society of Magazine Editors. "Stunningly diverse in subject and approach, these publications show why readers love magazines—in print, on line or on mobile devices."

More than 300 magazines participated in the National Magazine Awards this year, submitting 1,758 entries; 51 magazines were nominated in 23 categories.
