NEW YORK, NY (March 13, 2018)—The winners of the 2018 National Magazine Awards for Print and Digital Media were announced today at the Ellie Awards Annual Luncheon at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City. New York and The New Yorker both won three Ellies. GQ was the only other publication to receive more than one award, winning two. The awards presentation was hosted by Don Lemon, the anchor of “CNN Tonight With Don Lemon.”
Known as the Ellies for the elephant-shaped statuettes presented to each winner, the National Magazine Awards are sponsored by the American Society of Magazine Editors in association with the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism and are administered by ASME. This was the 53rd presentation of the awards. The first award was presented to Look in 1966; the first award for digital journalism was presented to Money in 1997.
This year, 58 media organizations were honored as finalists in 20 categories, including two new categories, Social Media and Digital Innovation; 16 print and digital publications won awards. The Ellies lunch featured the presentation of the Magazine Editors’ Hall of Fame Award to the founding editor of Metropolitan Home, Saveur and Garden Design, Dorothy Kalins. Danny Meyer, the chief executive officer of the Union Square Hospitality Group and founder of Shake Shack, presented the award to Kalins on behalf of ASME.
Also honored were the winner of the inaugural ASME Award for Fiction, Zoetrope: All-Story, edited by Michael Ray, and the recipients of the 2018 ASME Next Awards for Journalists Under 30: Forbes’ Dan Alexander, Glamour’s Lauren Chan, Slate’s Aymann Ismail and Katy Waldman and TheAtlantic.com's Vann R.
