ASME AWARD FOR FICTION

ASME NEXT AWARDS FOR JOURNALISTS UNDER 30

HOSTED BY JOHN AVLON


Brooklyn Steel, Williamsburg

THURSDAY, MARCH 14, 2019


The Ellie Awards honor print and digital publications that consistently demonstrate superior execution of editorial objectives, innovative techniques, noteworthy journalistic enterprise and imaginative art direction. The National Magazine Awards were established in 1966, when one award was presented to Look; the first award for digital journalism was presented to Money in 1997. The awards are sponsored by the American Society of Magazine Editors in association with the Columbia Journalism School and are administered by ASME. Originally limited to print magazines, the awards now recognize magazine-quality journalism published in any medium. Each winner receives an “Ellie,” modeled on the symbol of the awards, Alexander Calder’s stabile “Elephant.”


THE OSBORN ELLIOTT-NATIONAL MAGAZINE AWARDS SCHOLARSHIP

Ellie Awards ticket sales provide support for the Osborn Elliott Scholarship at the Columbia Journalism School. Named for the former Newsweek editor, ASME president and Columbia dean, the scholarship is awarded to students who intend to pursue careers in magazine journalism.
