The American Society of Magazine Editors (ASME), in conjunction with the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, every year presents recognition awards to the best magazines in the industry.To be chosen as a nominee, publications up for consideration must be published in print and/or digital platforms, and must consistently demonstrate superior execution of editorial objectives, innovative techniques, noteworthy journalistic enterprise, and imaginative art direction.
There were almost 300 publications entered into the 2012 competition, which created a total of 1,804 entries across all categories. Only 67 publications were then nominated for the 2012 National Magazine Awards by the judges, which were formed by a panel of magazine journalists and journalism educators.
TIME and again…
While the list of winners for digital excellence included a range of well- and lesser-known publications (Click here to see a list of the Digital Ellie winners), the brand that took the cake was TIME Magazine. And, it’s no surprise; TIME has been delivering shocking and inspiring journalism and photography for decades. The publication’s media kit sums it up best:
Every week in the magazine and every day online, TIME separates the crucial from the trivial, converts information into knowledge, and transforms confusion into clarity through exceptional writing, first-hand reporting and stunning photography.
Understanding comes with TIME.
Honoring the Occasion
There’s no better candidate for custom magazine article framing than a magazine. And these publications know this better than anyone else. That is why, when you walk into almost any magazine headquarters, you are going to see custom framed mountings of many of their most popular covers, the source of all their hard work and pride.
Just Like TIME
If you or your company has been featured in a magazine or newspaper article, you have reason to brag. Placing that article cover and/or article in a preservation frame and mount provides you with a way to do just that, but with a sleek, custom design made to fit the personality and brand of the person or company it features.
