The National Magazine Awards are given out by the American Society of Magazine Editors (ASME), and they're largely regarded as the Pulitzers of the magazine world. ASME announced the nominations today, and Salon has received a nod in the Interactive Feature category for some feature that goes by the name of . . . Open Salon! We're up against features from such little-known, fringe publications as AARP The Magazine, National Geographic and Wired.
The full list of nominees are right here.
So . . . congratulations! Your work is being honored in the company of the New Yorker, The Atlantic, The New York Times Magazine and the best in the magazine business. And deservedly so.
