Mag nabs 9 mentions across eight categories

The New Yorker once again dominates the National Magazine Award nomination roster. Mag has nine mentions across eight categories, including general excellence, reporting and feature writing.

Last year, mag picked up five Ellies — the nickname of the elephant-shaped award designed by Alexander Calder. There are 19 categories in all.

The Atlantic Monthly and Time magazines each received five noms. The New Yorker’s Conde Nast siblings Vanity Fair and Vogue nabbed two apiece.

For the first time, InStyle, O and Sports Illustrated for Women all made it on the ballot. Last year’s fiction winner, Zoetrope: All Story — a division of Francis Ford Coppola’s American Zoetrope — is a finalist in that category again. Teen People, a surprise winner last year for general excellence (for mags with a circulation over 1 million), did not find itself a repeat nominee.

Noms are first selected by a screening panel of educators and industryites; a separate jury of 75 chooses winners. Awards will be presented May 1 at the Waldorf Astoria.
