The National Magazine Awards (a.k.a. The Ellies) were given out last night and almost every magazine you can think of won, aside from The New Yorker. The magazine was nominated five times, but failed to take home a paperweight that vaguely resembles an elephant for the first time since 2007. But don’t feel bad for The New Yorker. It’s still The New Yorker.
Other notables from the Ellies: New York won Magazine of The Year and National Geographic won four times, the most of any magazine.
Below is the extremely long list of winners.
