Vogue, Glamour and W Score National Magazine Award Nominations
We spend plenty of time talking about the CFDAs—but where’s the awards show love for the fashion editors?
Not to worry: the American Society of Magazine Editors (ASME) has announced the nominees for its annual National Magazine Awards—known as the Ellies, for the Elephant statues given to the winners—and the fashion world is well represented.
Vogue received two nominations for this year’s ceremony: a General Excellence Award in the photography category, as well as a specific Feature Photography nomination for its “Lady Be Good” story in the March 2011 issue, starring Amber Valletta and photographed by Steven Klein.

Glamour and W will go head-to-head in the General Excellence, Women’s Magazines category (their other competition in the category included More, O, The Oprah Magazine, and Real Simple), while W will also compete with Vogue in the Feature Photography category with its “Planet Tilda” spread (starring Tilda Swinton, naturally, and shot by Tim Walker) from the August 2011 issue.
Glamour received one more recognition: the glossy has been nominated in the Personal Service Category for “The Secret That Kills Four Women a Day,” a story from the June 2011 issue that launched a campaign to raise awareness about relationship violence.
Esquire, Vanity Fair, New York, and The New York Times Magazine also scored multiple nominations, while The New Yorker came out on top with 6 nominations.
The awards will take place May 3 at the Marriott Marquis in New York.
