5280 Magazine Breaks Into Elite Group With 'The Saddlemaker;' Video A Finalist In National Magazine Awards for Digital Media (VIDEO)

Pop quiz: pick the publication that's least like the others in the following group: GQ, The New York Times Magazine, Slate, and 5280. If you picked 5280, you're correct, though perhaps not for the right reasons.

The above group has received honors for the outstanding use of video from the National Magazine Awards for Digital Media; 5280 is the first ever city and regional publication to be a finalist in the competition.

5280's video, "The Saddlemaker," follows Jesse Smith, a rancher in southeast Colorado who has handmade saddles there for the past 47 years. Watch the video above, or read more on the magazine's website.

The Denver Egotist adds that 5280 was recently named one of America's Top 5 city magazines for the third time.
