  National magazine award
The much-coveted National Magazine Award,
dubbed the “Ellie” award for obvious reasons.
Alexander Calder designed it,
and in real life, it’s a lovely, coppery color.

Hi everyone. We’ve just learned, this evening, that this very blog you’re reading has been nominated for a National Magazine Award! In the field of journalism, this is big stuff—not dining with the Queen of England, exactly, but you get the idea. Here’s a glimpse of our fellow nominees (aka the competition).

The National Magazine Digital Media awards will be announced on March 16, at the Hilton New York. Please wish us luck! You know we’ll be taking you with us.

In the meantime, we’ll keep on posting about all that’s growing, buzzing, chirping, fermenting, and mooing around these parts. As always, send us questions and comments, and we’ll run with them.

    KathyG: “Ellie” is a nickname for Alexander Calder’s Stabile Elephant, the ASME award you see above. If we win an Ellie on March 16th, we’ll shoot some pics from more obvious angles–I agree that it’s hard to differentiate the trunk (look at the right side of the photo) and the ears that morph into front legs.
