AQ Wins ASME "Brainiest" Cover Competition!


March 10, 2014


Thank you, AQ readers, for helping us win the Best Cover award for ASME's "brainiest" magazine category!

Last week, AQ entered the American Society of Magazine Editors (ASME) Readers’ Choice Award on Facebook,  submitting the cover of the Fall 2013 issue of AQ, "Media in the Americas: Threats to Free Speech," for online voting.

For a week, voters selected their favorite covers from some of the best-known magazines in the country, including The Atlantic, UTNE Reader, Bloomberg Business, Parade, and GQ, as well as fan favorites like POZ Magazine.

This Sunday, we came away with the win, with over 1, 100 likes on Facebook, 165 shares and dozens of comments from supporters of AQ! We now advance to the next round of the competition, from March 31 to April 13, where you can "like" us in the best overall magazine category!

Here's our winning cover:

Special thanks to all readers who voted for us, shared news about the competition on their Facebook walls, and Tweeted about us! We are truly lucky to have such a committed and enthusiastic readership.

We'd also like to thank our Artistic Director, Donald Partyka, and our Associate Art Director, Paula Daneze. Without their artistic vision, this amazing cover would not have been possible!
