AUDUBON MAGAZINE 2002 NATIONAL MAGAZINE AWARD FINALIST

ASME Names Audubon Magazine Finalist in Design Category

New York, NY, April 2, 2002 - Audubon magazine, the flagship publication of
the National Audubon Society, has been named a finalist for the 2002
National Magazine Awards.  This recognition ranks as the industry's highest
honor.

The magazine was chosen in the design category, which recognizes excellence
in magazine design, and honors the effectiveness of overall design, artwork,
graphics and typography in enhancing a magazine's unique mission and
personality.  This marks the 18th time that Audubon magazine has been a
National Magazine Award finalist; the magazine has been a winner four times.
This is its first nomination in Design.

"Being chosen as a finalist in the design category is especially
gratifying," said Audubon Editor-in-Chief David Seideman.  "It's a real
honor for Audubon magazine to be recognized for the efforts of Design
Director Kevin Fisher and his excellent team, Photo Editor Kim Hubbard and
Associate Art Director Isabel De Sousa.  Kevin's team is committed to
keeping Audubon a leader in magazine design and photography.  Their hard
work has paid dividends; not only have we received this nomination, Audubon
magazine also received 19 photo awards in the last month."

The magazine was chosen for the design work on three issues from last year:
January/February, March/April, and November/December.  The other finalists
in the design category include Details, Esquire, Nest, Surface, and Time.

The National Magazine Awards are presented by ASME, the American Society of
Magazine Editors, and administered by the Graduate School of Journalism,
Columbia University.  The Awards ceremony will take place on May 1, 2002.
There will be 19 winners in 15 categories.

Called "the most beautiful magazine in the world," by The New York Times,
Audubon is currently celebrating its 103rd year of publication, during which
the magazine has set the mark for nature writing, conservation reporting,
design and photography.
