Think Academy Awards, red carpet, black tie. In the magazine world, top honors come not as Oscars, but as Ellies, and they’re awarded by the American Society of Magazine Editors. At tonight’s National Magazine Awards in New York Mother Jones won the 2007 award for General Excellence (100,000 to 250,000 circulation). (Check out the year’s issues here.)

We beat out the respectable company of Foreign Policy, Paste, Radar, and Philadelphia. More on the winners and nominees (Mother Jones was also nominated for Lana Slezic’s photo essay on the women of Afghanistan) here.

And thanks to all our readers for your support. Expect more excellence to come!

A BETTER WAY TO DO THIS?

We have an ambitious $350,000 online fundraising goal this month and we can't afford to come up short. But when a reader recently asked how being a nonprofit makes Mother Jones different from other news organizations, we realized we needed to lay this out better: Because "in absolutely every way" is essentially the answer.

So we tried to explain why your year-end donations are so essential, and we'd like your help refining our pitch about what make Mother Jones valuable and worth reading to you.

We'd also like your support of our journalism with a year-end donation if you can right now—all online gifts will be doubled until we hit our $350,000 goal thanks to an incredibly generous donor's matching gift pledge.
