The American Society of Magazine Editors (ASME) has announced the winners of the 58th National Magazine Awards in a live ceremony at Terminal 5 in New York City. The awards, presented since 1966, are sponsored by the American Society of Magazine Editors in association with the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism.
Originally limited to print magazines, the awards now recognize magazine journalism published in any medium for their editorial excellence in various categories, including Reporting, Feature Writing, Podcasting, and Video.
This year’s award-winning stories focused on women’s health and family topics in light of the fall of Roe v. Wade. Notable pieces included Jia Tolentino’s work for The New Yorker, Natasha Pearlman’s article for Glamour, and Romper’s feature edited by Meaghan O’Connell and Melissa Dahl. The New York Times Magazine and New York were multiple award winners, with Condé Nast topping the group publisher list.
The most prestigious honor, General Excellence, went to four publications. Winners were: The Atlantic, The Marshall Project and two first-time winners, Cook’s Illustrated and Grist.
In other categories, first-time winners were Gimlet (Podcasting), The New York Review of Books (Reviews & Criticism), and Romper (Service Journalism), which was also a first-time nominee.
The ASME Award for Fiction went to The Paris Review for three stories. Winners of the ASME Awards for Design, Photography, and Illustration were recognized in various categories, with honorees for ASME NEXT Awards for Journalists Under 30 also celebrated.
“ASME is proud to celebrate the achievements and wide-ranging work of the editors, writers, video makers and podcasters that are propelling our industry forward,” said Sidney Holt, executive director of ASME and administrator of the National Magazine Awards. “Tonight, we toasted the winners among 350 of our peers, and we will continue to honor and champion the great and important work journalism plays in our society.”
