Economist is finalist for National Magazine Award
The other finalists in the General Excellence category for magazines with circulation between 500,000 and 1 million are Conde Nast Traveler, Esquire, Gourmet, GQ and Wired.
There were no other business magazines that were finalists in any of the General Excellence categories, but Fortune is a finalist in the reporting category. The article that’s a finalist is “The Law Firm of Hubris, Hypocrisy and Greed” by Peter Elkind.
BusinessWeek.com is a finalist in a new category called Interactive Service, and it’s also a finalist in the General Excellence Online category.
I believe I said this last year, but business magazines, particularly BusinessWeek, used to be better represented in the finalists for the awards, but that’s slipped in the past three to four years.
