'New Yorker' Leads Field With 10 Nominations

By Published on .

NEW YORK ( -- The American Society of Magazine Editors today announced the finalists for this year's National Magazine Awards.

Topping the list as the most nominated title is, again, Conde Nast Publications' The New Yorker, which received 10 nominations including one for General Excellence. Other magazines receiving multiple nominations include another Conde Nast title, Vanity Fair (seven), and The Atlantic Monthly (five).

Five magazines received three nominations apiece: Fairchild Publications' Details; Hearst Magazines' Esquire; Time Inc.'s Fortune; Conde Nast's Gourmet; New York Magazine; and Time Inc.'s Sports Illustrated.

Among the magazines recognized this year are some first-time nominees, which are darlings of magazine insiders, such as the smart-set journal The Believer and an advertising-free title for the food-obsessed, Cook's Illustrated.

New York, which revamped significantly last year under new ownership and a new editor, Adam Moss, received multiple nominations for the first time since 1993.
