For the second year running, the Antioch Review has been named a finalist for the Annual National Magazine Award. This year's nomination is in the fiction category for the story "The Coat" by German writer Uwe Timm, translated by Robert C. Conard, Professor Emeritus at the University of Dayton. The story was published in the Summer 2009 all-fiction issue of the Review.
"We are obviously thrilled at the national recognition the Review is receiving," said Robert S. Fogarty, editor in chief. "It shows that the world at large is recognizing our continuing commitment to serve our readers and our authors and to publish the 'best words in the best order.'"
The Review is the smallest magazine selected in any award category, with a circulation of just 3000.
Sponsored by the American Society of Magazine Editors in association with the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, the National Magazine Awards were established in 1966 and have long been recognized as the preeminent awards for magazine journalism in the United States. National Magazine Awards Annual Gala will take place this year at Alice Tully Hall in New York City on April 22.
