From 1982-2002, there were separate awards for President's Medal (top article) and Magazine of the Year (top magazine). Since 2002 there has been no award for the top overall article. From 2002-2005, the President's Medal was instead awarded to the Magazine of the Year. Since 2006, the name 'President's Medal' was dropped in favour of simply Magazine of the Year.
