Magazine Grand Prix

 

The Magazine Grand Prix award goes to the Best Magazine winner which demonstrates overall excellence in bringing its publishing team together to create an outstanding product. For the 41st annual National Magazine Awards, the winner is The Site Magazine.

 

 

The National Magazine Awards jury said of the magazine:

 

“The Site Magazine impresses readers with the consistency of its content and design. Though highly specialized, this audacious magazine captures the essence of contemporary publishing through a conceptual approach that illuminates our time in an intelligent, deep and original way. The result is a great reader experience on every page, one that is truly deserving of the Magazine Grand Prix.”
