SPREADING THE WEALTH: New York magazine has supplanted The New Yorker as the favored child of the American Society of Magazine Editors, as reflected by its big wins at this year's National Magazine Awards, held Tuesday night in Rose Hall at Jazz at Lincoln Center. The city weekly took home five Ellies, the elephant-like bronze statues give to the honorees. The New Yorker, which usually comes away with enough Ellies every year to leave editor in chief David Remnick looking like Mark Spitz at the Olympics, was shut out for the first time since 1999, even though it had received nine nominations.

New York won for general excellence in magazines with circulation between 250,000 to 500,000. It also took home Ellies for design, helmed by design director Luke Hayman, who joined design firm Pentagram in December and most recently worked on Time's redesign; for profile writing, for Vanessa Grigoriadis' piece on Karl Lagerfeld, and for magazine section for its shopping service section, The Strategist. Nymag.com won the award for interactive feature.

National Geographic won two awards out of its five nominations, for general excellence for magazines with circulations over two million and for photography. Vanity Fair won two of its four nominations, for public interest, and columns and commentary for three columns by the always colorful Christopher Hitchens.

Esquire took home one award from its seven nominations in the reporting category — for its C.J. Chivers piece "The School" on the 2004 massacre at a grade school in the Russian town of Beslan. Competitor GQ took home an Ellie from its four nominations, for feature writing for Andrew Corsello's piece, "The Other Side of Hate."

Jann Wenner's Rolling Stone won an Ellie for general excellence for magazines between one million and two million circulation. Wired took home general excellence for magazines between 500,000 and one million circulation, beating out Condé Nast Traveler, The Economist, Esquire, Gourmet and GQ. Finally, the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists — this year's "What's that?" ASME nominee — won an Ellie for general excellence for magazines under 100,000 circulation (the title last won an ASME in 1987).
