Vogue may have gotten snubbed at last year's National Magazine awards--but this year the mag took home top honors.
Anna Wintour picked up the award--dubbed an Ellie and presented to her by Girls' Alison Williams--for General Excellence in Print in the Service and Fashion category. The magazine's 2012 March, September and December issues won the award.
It's quite the turnaround from last year when the glossy failed to even get nominated for General Excellence. Part of the reason for the about-face has to do with how the category was framed--last year it was simply Women's Magazines (O, The Oprah Magazine won) and this year it's been narrowed down slightly to Fashion and Service magazines.
Other notable wins this year include New York for Magazine of the Year--kind of like winning Best Picture at the Oscars--and Steven Klein's Kate Moss shoot for W which won for General Excellence in Feature Photography.
Read on for a complete list of winners.
