American Society of Magazine Editors

10 Magazine Section

This category honors the editorial direction of a clearly branded front- or back-of-the-book department or section regularly published in print. Judges will evaluate entries based on the ambition and skill of the editors and designers as demonstrated by the quality and consistency of the reporting, writing, illustrations and photography; the originality and cohesiveness of the section; and the value and usefulness of the content. An entry consists of three complete examples of the same magazine section from three different issues.
