Intended to advance the practice of journalism and promote the value of magazines and websites to readers and advertisers, 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 storytelling published in any medium, including newspapers and newsletters. First presented 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. The ASME Award for Fiction, the ASME Awards for Design, Photography and Illustration and the ASME NEXT Awards for Journalists Under 30 are judged and presented in conjunction with the National Magazine Awards.

National Magazine Awards 2024 finalists and winners will be honored at the annual presentation of the ASME Awards at Terminal 5 in New York, from 5:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Tuesday, April 2, 2024. Finalists in each category will receive certificates of recognition. Winners will receive an “Ellie,” modeled on the symbol of the awards, Alexander Calder’s stabile “Elephant Walking.”  Winners of the ASME Award for Fiction, the ASME Awards for Design, Photography and Illustration and the ASME NEXT Awards will be honored at the same time.
