– ASME Best Magazine Cover of the Year

On Monday, Oct. 6, the American Society of Magazine Editors announced the winner of the Best Magazine Cover of the Year award. New York magazine was crowned the overall 2008 champion with a cover featuring "a graphic illustration by Barbara Kruger based on a Getty/Contour photo by Henry Leutwyler." New York magazine trounced the competition, winning four of the eight categories and tying in a fifth. My favorite cover, a Texas Monthly featuring Willie Nelson, won the Best Celebrity Cover award.  You can see the rest of the award winners and read the stories behind the covers here !
