Cook’s Illustrated Nominated (Twice!) for the 2023 ASME National Magazine Awards

Our brand is a finalist in two different categories: General Excellence, Lifestyle and Service; and Video.

Published Mar. 6, 2023.

We are thrilled to announce that Cook’s Illustrated has been nominated by the American Society of Magazine Editors (ASME) for two National Magazine Awards

If you don’t know much about the National Magazine Awards, here’s a quick rundown: They’ve been around since 1966 and they’re sponsored by both ASME and the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism (ASME also administers them). The awards were once limited to print but now recognize journalism published in any medium.

We love what ASME said in the press release announcing the nominees:

“Our 2023 honorees represent the best in print and digital journalism, from in-depth investigations and thought-provoking imagery to think pieces and controversial analysis.”
-Sidney Holt, executive director of ASME

Our brand is a finalist in two categories: General Excellence, Service and Lifestyle; and Video. 

For the first category (which considers all content types produced by a publication, including print, web, and video), we submitted three issues from 2022 (March/April, May/June, September/October) along with links to stories and reels that feature some of our best reporting, science-based discoveries, and exhaustive kitchen testing from the year.

Check them out here.

For the Video category, we were nominated for the episode on asparagus from the hit Youtube series What’s Eating Dan?, created and hosted by Editor in Chief Dan Souza. This series conveys the nerdy vibe of Cook’s Illustrated in a fun, lighthearted way, and gives the viewer a better understanding of the complex science behind everyday cooking. 

ASME will announce the winners of the 2023 National Magazine Awards on Tuesday, March 28. Fingers crossed!
