VQR Receives Two National Magazine Award Nominations

PUBLISHED: March 18, 2009

The finalists for the 2009 National Magazine Awards, the Pulitzers of the magazine world, were announced earlier today in New York, and for the fifth consecutive year VQR picked up multiple nominations. For the fifth straight year, we’re a finalist for the General Excellence award (for circulation under 100,000) along with American Scholar, Aperture, Bidoun, and Print.

We’ve also received our fifth nomination in Fiction in five years for two stories in our Summer 2008 issue:

Also named as finalists in the Fiction category are American Scholar, the New Yorker (two nominations), and Paris Review.

This makes fifteen nominations in five years with three wins: General Excellence and Fiction categories in 2006 and Single-Topic Issue in 2008. Congratulations to all the writers and artists who we were fortunate to publish last year and to the VQR staff! A complete list of the finalists is available here.
