Conde Nast duo shines at National Magazine AwardsConde Nast Publications' Vanity Fair and Conde Nast Traveler, and Fast Company and I.D. Magazine won general excellence prizes in their respective circulation categories at the 1999 National Magazine Awards today in New York. All but newcomer Fast Company had won the same honor in past years. Other winners were: The American Scholar (feature writing); The Atlantic Monthly (essays and criticism); ESPN the Magazine (design); Good Housekeeping (personal service); Harper's (fiction); Martha Stewart Living (photography); Newsweek (reporting, for breaking the Monica Lewinsky story); The Oxford American (single-topic issue); PC Computing (special interests); Time (public interest); and Cigar Aficionado Online (general excellence in new media). The big surprise was the shutout of perennial favorite The New Yorker despite eight nominations. An attempt to broadcast the awards event live on the Web for the first time backfired, disrupting a video presentation of nominees for more than an hour.
