The American Society of Magazine Editors revealed the nominees for its annual National Magazine Awards during an hour-long Twittercast Thursday.
A total of 66 outlets were nominated across two dozen categories, with publications competing for distinctions in everything from reporting to fiction to design to video. Better Homes and Gardens, Cosmopolitan, The Hollywood Reporter, New York and Vogue, however, are the five publications in the running for the group's most esteemed award, Magazine of the Year. Bloomberg Businessweek, GQ, The New York Times Magazine, The Atlantic, Politico and The New Republic are also among the magazines to receive multiple nominations.
“The National Magazine Awards 2015 finalists demonstrate the enduring power of magazine journalism in print and on websites and mobile,” Sid Holt, chief executive of ASME, said in a statement. “Whether it’s politics, fashion, sports or the kind of service journalism that only magazines can do, readers know that their favorite print and digital magazines are where to find information and entertainment they can trust.”
A handful of memorable articles are also up for top prizes. Monica Lewinsky's "Shame and Survival," for Vanity Fair, and Ta-Nehisi Coates' long-form cover story "The Case for Reparations," for The Atlantic, are both finalists for ASME's Essays and Criticism award, which "honors interpretative and critical journalism."
