VQR Named a Finalist for Digital Ellies

PUBLISHED: March 3, 2010

Last fall, the American Society of Magazine Editors announced an expansion of the National Magazine Awards (known as the “Ellies”) to encompass the burgeoning world of online journalism. The nominations for the Digital Ellies were announced today and we’re excited to say we nabbed one!

Jason Motlagh’s series on the Mumbai terror attacks, “Sixty Hours of Terror,” published exclusively on this blog, was named a finalist in the “News Reporting” category, along with work from Bloomberg BusinessWeek, Mother Jones, Slate, and Time.

Jason’s report was an experiment for us—to see if the long-form narrative reporting we’re fond of could work online. It turned out to be one of the most-read articles we’ve ever published and this nomination for an Ellie, the magazine world’s highest honor, is extemely gratifying. Congrats go out to Jason and all our staff for their hard work.

The full list of the categories and finalists are at ASME’s website [2]. An announcement of the finalists for the print Ellies is expected in a couple of weeks.
