The Ellie Awards honor print and digital publications that consistently demonstrate superior execution of editorial objectives, innovative techniques, noteworthy journalistic 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 in each of the 20 Ellie Award categories receive certificates of recognition. The winner in each category receives a reproduction of Alexander Calder's stabile "Elephant," the symbol of the awards since 1970. Among the notable changes for 2017 are the expansion of the Design and Photography categories to include digital entries and the suspension of the Fiction award.

Finalists and winners will be honored at the Ellie Awards Annual Gala, hosted by ASME, at Cipriani Wall Street in New York on Tuesday, February 7, 2017.  After 10 years as an evening event, this year the awards will be presented at lunch. The gala is held in conjunction with the American Magazine Media Conference, which ASME sponsors with MPA–The Association of Magazine Media.
