The Ellie Awards honor print and digital publications that consistently demonstrate superior execution of editorial objectives, innovative techniques, noteworthy journalistic enterprise and imaginative art direction. Established 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 21 Ellie Awards include 3 print categories, 3 digital categories and 15 categories in which either print or digital content may be submitted. Finalists in each category 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.

Notable changes for 2016 include the consolidation of General Excellence into four categories with seven finalists each; the expansion of the Magazine Section category to include digital entries; and the suspension of the Tablet Magazine award. The Ellie Awards website has also been completely reengineered to make it easier to enter the competition.

Finalists and winners will be honored at the Annual Ellie Awards Dinner, hosted by ASME, at the Grand Hyatt New York on Monday, February 1, 2016. The dinner is held in conjunction with the American Magazine Media Conference, which MPA—The Association of Magazine Media sponsors with ASME.
