The American Society of Magazine Editors, in conjunction with Amazon.com, has sponsored a contest to select the best magazine cover of the year (June 30, 2009-May 31, 2010) in each of twelve categories. Those twelve category winners, seen below, are now the finalists in a vote to determine the best magazine cover of the year.

Official voting will take place at http://www.amazon.com/bestcovers, but check out the twelve category winners below and vote for your favorite (descriptions come from the ASME):

Harper’s Bazaar, December 2009: “Twilight”
1 of 13
Best Vampire: People of all ages sunk their teeth into the Twilight saga. At the forefront of the vampire phenomenon were Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, who graced Harper’s Bazaar’s December subscriber cover in a rare shot together. Harper's Bazaar was the only monthly magazine to feature the couple on a cover. While the epic image played on the idea of courtship, it was given extra heat due to their real-life romance.
