The staff of Military History magazine strives to create an exceptional publication, a magazine that not only provides information but also gives our readers an enjoyable, satisfying cover-to-cover experience with each issue. The staff was understandably proud, then, to learn that the American Society of Magazine Editors has nominated Military History for one of its prestigious National Magazine Awards.
Sid Holt, Chief Executive of the American Society of Magazine Editors, today announced the finalists for the 45th annual National Magazine Awards. Among the 51 magazines nominated in 23 categories are 20 magazines with multiple nominations—led by New York and The New Yorker with 10 each and National Geographic with 7—and 8 never-before-nominated titles: Architect, The Boston Globe Magazine, The Boston Review, Food Network Magazine, Garden & Gun, Military History, Orion and Out.
Military History is one of five print titles nominated for General Excellence in the "under 100,000 circulation" category. The others are Aperture, Architect, The Paris Review, and San Francisco.
“Magazines have never been better,” said Mr. Holt. “The depth of reporting, quality of writing, superior story telling and unparalleled service journalism in this year’s National Magazine Awards finalists showcases the editorial strengths of our medium.”
More than 300 magazines participated in the National Magazine Awards this year, submitting 1,758 entries. Military History is honored to be chosen a finalist in this select group.
The National Magazine Awards are known as the Ellies, for the Alexander Calder stabile “Elephant” given to each winner.
