The American Society of Magazine Editors (ASME) today announced the finalists for the 2014 National Magazine Awards. Known as the Ellies for the Alexander Calder stabile "Elephant" given to each award winner the National Magazine Awards will be presented on Thursday, May 1, at the New York Marriott Marquis.

Sixty-six publications were nominated this year in 24 categories. Twenty-six magazines received multiple nominations, led by New York with nine, followed by National Geographic, The New Yorker and Wired, each with six. Bon Appétitreceived five nominations; GQ and Harper’s Magazine both received four.

Magazines with three nominations include The Atavist, The Atlantic, Esquire, Garden & Gun, The New York Times Magazine, Outside, Vanity Fair and W. Publications with two nominations are Backpacker, Bloomberg Businessweek, ESPN The Magazine, Glamour, Los Angeles, Martha Stewart Living, Modern Farmer, Money, Poetry, Runner’s World and Slate.

Six publications are first-time finalists: The Hollywood Reporter, Landscape Architecture and Pacific Standard for General Excellence; Modern Farmer for General Excellence and Magazine Section; Road & Track for Magazine Section; and The Verge for Video.

Digital-first finalists include The Atavist for Multimedia, Video and Reporting; The Daily Beast for Multimedia; Pitchfork for Website; Slate for Website and Columns and Commentary; Tablet Magazine for Columns and Commentary; and The Verge for Video.

Among the notable writers whose work was short listed were Sarah Stillman, one of whose stories for The New Yorker was nominated in the Public Interest category for the third year in a row (her story “The Invisible Army” won the award in 2012); Luke Mogelson, whose stories “The Dream Boat” for The New York Times Magazine and “The River Martyrs” for The New Yorker were both nominated in Reporting; and Wells Tower, whose essay “The Old Man at Burning Man” for GQ and short story “The Dance Contest” for McSweeney’s were nominated in Essays and Criticism and Fiction respectively.

Also honored were Ta-Nehisi Coates, whose blog posts for The Atlantic were nominated in Columns and Commentary and whose story “Fear of a Black President” won the award for Essays and Criticism for The Atlantic last year; David Kamp, whose article “The Day Before” for Vanity Fair was nominated for Feature Writing and whose work is the basis for the Vanity Fair series “The Snob’s Dictionary,” which was nominated in Video; and Tim Walker, whose photographs for W were nominated for the third time in the last four years in Feature Photography.

Articles by the novelists Jonathan Franzen, Zadie Smith and William T. Vollman were also short listed. The nominated pieces are Franzen's “Last Song” for National Geographic in Public Interest; Smith's “Embassy of Cambodia” for The New Yorker in Fiction; and Vollman's “Life as a Terrorist” for Harper’s Magazine in Essays and Criticism.

“The range of this year’s finalists is testament to the vitality of magazine media,” said Sid Holt, chief executive of ASME. “Every day media consumers turn to magazines for practical information and advice about their passions and interests. Also growing is readers’ interest in the kind of long-form journalism and digital storytelling that only magazines can deliver. Whatever readers are looking for, they know the best place to find it is in magazines and that’s what these nominations show, that the quality of magazine journalism both in print and on digital platforms is at an all-time high.”

Established in 1966, the National Magazine Awards are sponsored by ASME in association with the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism. More than 250 publications entered the National Magazine Awards this year, submitting 1,586 entries. The judges included 333 magazine editors, art directors and photography editors as well as journalism educators.
