ellie_NMA.jpg You see that shiny elephant sculpture to the right? That’s the National Magazine Award we won for General Excellence tonight (100,000 to 250,000 circulation). These pointy beauties, otherwise known as Ellies, are awarded annually in New York by the American Society of Magazine Editors. They’re basically the Oscars of the magazine world. Winning General Excellence? That’s like winning Best Picture.

(Check out this year’s National Magazine Award-winning issues here, here, and here.)

Congratulations to all the nominees in our category: Foreign Policy, Paste, Garden & Gun, and Martha Stewart Weddings

UPDATE: This, of course, just proves that reader-supported journalism really works. We hope you enjoy your Ellie!

FOLLOW THE MONEY

Corporations and billionaires don’t fund journalism like ours that exists to shake things up. Instead, support from readers allows Mother Jones to call it like it is without fear, favor, or false equivalence.

And right now, a longtime friend of Mother Jones has pledged an incredibly generous gift to inspire—and double—giving from online readers. That's huge! Because you can see that our fall fundraising drive is well behind the $325,000 we need to raise. So if you agree that in-depth, fiercely independent journalism matters right now, please support our work and help us raise the money it takes to keep Mother Jones charging hard. Your gift, and all online donations up to $94,000 total, will be matched and go twice as far—but only until the November 9 deadline.

$400,000 to go: Please help us pick up the pace!
