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-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 will be twittercast on Thursday, April 8, 2021. Winners will be announced at Brooklyn Steel, in New York City, on Thursday, June 10, 2021. The winner in each category will receive an “Ellie,” modeled on the symbol of the awards, Alexander Calder’s stabile “Elephant Walking.” Finalists will receive certificates of recognition. The recipients of the Magazine Editor’s Hall of Fame Award, the ASME Award for Fiction and the ASME Awards for Journalists Under 30 will also be honored.
