Congratulations to "Mother Jones."

By Emma Brazilian

Mother Jones (click here) took top honors at the 2017 National Magazine Awards—known in the industry as the Ellies—this afternoon in downtown Manhattan. The 41-year-old bimonthly, which also won in the Reporting category for its blockbuster exposé on private prisons, beat out fellow Magazine of the Year finalists The New Yorker, Cosmopolitan, The California Sunday Magazine and New York magazine.

New York, however, managed to tie for the most awards won, claiming best Magazine Section (for its “Culture Pages” department), Single-Topic Issue (for the Oct. 3-16 issue, “Eight Years in America”), Video (for “Guns & Empathy”). The New York Times Magazine also won three Ellies: Feature Writing (for “I Have No Choice but to Keep Looking” by Jennifer Percy), Public Interest (for “Worlds Apart” by Nikole Hannah-Jones), and Essays and Criticism (“David’s Ankles” by Sam Anderson).

First-time winners included The Marshall Project (General Excellence in Literature, Science and Politics), Good (Personal Service) and Huffington Post Highline (Multimedia)....
