Here at Paste
HQ, we've been know to toot our own horn from time to time
, so excuse us while we tip back a glass right now. For the second year in a row, the American Society of Magazine Editors has nominated Paste
as a finalist for the prestigious National Magazine Award in the General Excellence category.
Winners will be announced April 30 at New York City's Jazz at Lincoln Center, but judging by our company, which includes The New Yorker, The Atlantic, Wired and the like, it's simply an honor to get nominated.
"We're thrilled," said Editor-In-Chief Josh Jackson. "When we launched Paste, we were inspired by not just the great music magazines out there, but also National Magazine Award-winning titles like Wired, Esquire and The New Yorker. They seem to always be pushing into new creative territory and I'm proud of our staff for pushing what it means to be an entertainment magazine."
Paste is the fourth music magazine to be nominated for the "General Excellence" category in the 44-year history of the awards. Other nominees in the circulation 100,000-250,000 include Foreign Policy, Los Angeles Magazine, Mother Jones and Time Out New York.
