Tonight, National Geographic was honored at the 2020 National Magazine Awards for Print and Digital Media with four wins in the Feature Photography, Social Media, Feature Design, and Photography categories. The Ellie Awards follow last week’s 24th Annual Webby Awards, where National Geographic received 15 Webby Awards, including Media Company of the Year.
“I’m delighted our work has not only captured the attention of our global audiences, but of the Ellie judges, who recognize that we’re using every means and every platform to shine a light on the planet’s most important and inspiring stories, empowering people to help make the world a better place,” said Susan Goldberg, National Geographic’s editor in chief and editorial director. “Our awards span the breadth of what we do, from the oldest print platforms to the newest innovative work in how we reach audiences. It’s enormously gratifying to see a 132-year old journalism institution succeed on every platform. Journalism is the ultimate team sport, and our success here tonight is a credit to our entire staff and to our many contributors. We could not be more proud of this well-deserved recognition for our team.”
The New York Times Magazine took top honors with five wins, followed by National Geographic and Bon Appétit, who each won four. National Geographic had first-time wins in Feature Photography and Social Media.
Established in 1966, the National Magazine Awards for Print and Digital Media are sponsored by the American Society of Magazine Editors in association with the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism and are administered by ASME. Originally limited to print magazines, the awards now recognize magazine-quality journalism published in any medium.
