Time Wins Magazine of the Year Award
Time was named magazine of the year at the annual National Magazine Awards on Thursday night, taking home a prize introduced in 2010 to honor brands that excel across both print and digital.
Vice magazine, which had celebrated its first nomination for a National Magazine Award with a press release thanking the industry for “realizing we do it better than you,” lost to Bloomberg Businessweek for general excellence among general-interest magazines.
It was Businessweek’s first win for general excellence since Bloomberg acquired the title in 2009.
Four magazines won their first-ever general excellence awards, which were the top prizes before the magazine of the year category was created: O, The Oprah Magazine, for general excellence among women’s magazines; Inc., for active- and special-interest magazines; House Beautiful, for lifestyle magazines; and IEEE Spectrum, for thought-leader magazines.
Congratulations to all. And hat tip to Vice for being clever.
