Four Bay Area Publications Win National Magazine Awards

A coveted Ellie.
Every year since 1966, the American Society of Magazine Editors and Columbia University's school of journalism have issued National Magazine Awards, more commonly known as Ellie's (the trophies look at lot like elephants).

The Bay Area cleaned up this year, with four local magazines taking home four pachyderm-y accolades. San Francisco magazine grabbed a general excellence award in the less than 100,000-circulation category for its April, August, and December issues. Mother Jones also won for general excellence in the 100,000 to 250,000-circulation category for its July/August, September/October, and November/December issues.

Wired's "The Mystery Issue," which ran in May, took the top award for Single-Topic Issue. And McSweeney's Quarterly received the grand prize for fiction for "Memory Wall," by Anthony Doerr, "Raw Water," by Wells Tower, and "Further Interpretations of Real-Life Events," by Kevin Moffett.

Congrats to you all, and may your business plans remain viable.
