Ellie Awards

The National Magazine Awards honor print and digital publications that consistently demonstrate superior execution of editorial objectives, innovative techniques, noteworthy enterprise and imaginative design. Originally limited to print magazines, the awards now recognize magazine-quality journalism published in any medium. Founded in 1966, the 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.

Finalists and winners were honored during a virtual presentation on Thursday, May 28, 2020. Awards were presented in 22 categories. The winner in each category will receive an “Ellie,” modeled on the symbol of the awards, Alexander Calder’s stabile “Elephant Walking.” Finalists will receive certificates of recognition. Tom Junod presented the Magazine Editor’s Hall of Fame Award to David Granger; Emily Nemens accepted the ASME Award for Fiction on behalf of The Paris Review; and the five recipients of the ASME Awards for Journalists Under 30 were also honored.
