The American Society of Magazines Editors (ASME) have announced the winners of its annual best magazine cover contest. New York took the big prize, winning “Best Cover” for its October 3 issue, shown above.
“The editors deliberately chose a model representing the story at its most extreme and photographed her in the pose made iconic by Demi Moore on the cover of Vanity Fair,” the ASME said of the winning cover. “Her belly was plumped with a prosthetic pillow, then carefully retouched to look real. The over-the-top poster-like cover was meant to stop consumers in their tracks — and it did.”
