The 2017 ASME best cover contest honors magazine covers published between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2016. The contest comprises two sets of awards: the ASME best cover awards (chosen by ASME members) and the ASME readers’ choice awards, including the ASME most-liked cover (as determined by likes on Facebook). Each cover entered is eligible to win both a best cover award and a readers’ choice award.

Readers can vote for a favorite cover here until Jan. 26.

A full list of Ellie Award nominees will be unveiled Jan. 19.

The awards, established in 1966, are sponsored by ASME in association with the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism.
