NAILS was thrilled to win four Maggie Awards this year, doubling our total previous wins at one fell swoop. The Maggies, presented by the Western Publishers Association, are given to outstanding magazines published west of the Mississippi River, honoring editorial, design, and promotion excellence. At this year’s 51st Annual Maggie Awards, NAILS took top honors in the following categories:
Best Health, Beauty, or Fitness Trade Magazine recognizing editorial and design excellence.
Best Supplement (Trade or Consumer) for our NAILS & Feet supplement to the May 2001 issue.
Best Color Editorial Layout (Trade) for our fall polish preview, “Farmer’s Market,” in the September 2001 issue.

NAILS has won four previous Maggies — one in 1993 for best Trade Magazine, two in 1996 for Best Editorial Layout and Most Improved Publication, and one in 2001 for Best Health, Beauty, or Fitness Trade Magazine. This year’s awards bring our grand total to eight. The 2002 Maggie Awards received more than 1,800 entries; other winners this year include Shape, PC World, Road & Track, and Islands magazines.
