Fortune Names Elon Musk Businessperson of The Year

Have you ever won an award? Of course you have. Everyone has, because there are awards for every possible thing you can imagine. The amount of awards completely robs them of their meaning, but it doesn’t matter — everyone likes getting awards/honors, so organizations and companies keep giving them out. Therefore, we imagine Elon Musk is slightly excited about being named Fortune’s 2013 Businessperson of The Year.

Musk, as you probably know, is the guy behind Tesla Motors and SpaceX. He definitely deserves the honor. Cool looking cars and space tourism are important. We think.

Anyway, you can read Fortune’s take on Musk here. Below is the full list of people considered for Businessperson of the Year.

Ad Age Names Bon Appétit Magazine of The Year

Bon Appétit has been named Ad Age’s Magazine of The Year. Ad Age ties the magazine’s dominance directly to editor-in-chief Adam Rapoport and Pamela Drucker Mann, Bon Appétit’s VP/publisher:

This year, the magazine’s ad pages through October have increased 21% from the period a year earlier, according to the Media Information Newsletter, with much of its new business coming from non-endemic clients such as Chanel, BMW and Chase. That has helped the magazine turn in some of its thickest issues in the last six years.

Rapoport said that the secret to success wasn’t just his and Drucker Mann’s leadership. In fact, creating a good magazine was simple. ”It’s about working your tail off and producing great content,” said Rapoport.

Drucker Mann was a bit less humble than Rapoport when describing Bon Appétit. ”We’re not just following the food trends,” she told Ad Age. “We’re making the food trends.”

As Drake would say, oh you fancy huh.

West Coast Print Veterans Win Awards for Patch

Among the many first-place awards handed out Sunday night at the LA Press Club’s SoCal Journalism Awards was Online Journalist of the Year. That particular honor went to Martin Henderson (pictured) who, before his current duties with Rancho Santa Margarita and Lake Forest Patch, spent a number of years working in San Diego for the LA Times.

Meanwhile, a little earlier this month up the coast, Charles Burress, local editor for Berkeley and Albany Patch, claimed several top prizes at the Greater Bay Area Journalism Awards. His resume includes stints at the Chronicle as both an editor and reporter:

Burress’ reporting won first place for News Story, Feature of a Light Nature and Headline, a category in which he won second and third place as well. Charles’s work includes reporting on milestone scientific discoveries at the University of California, Berkeley, as well as fun pieces like this one that explains the significance of President’s Day.

The New Yorker Snubbed at National Magazine Awards

The National Magazine Awards (a.k.a. The Ellies) were given out last night and almost every magazine you can think of won, aside from The New Yorker. The magazine was nominated five times, but failed to take home a paperweight that vaguely resembles an elephant for the first time since 2007. But don’t feel bad for The New Yorker. It’s still The New Yorker.

Other notables from the Ellies: New York won Magazine of The Year and National Geographic won four times, the most of any magazine.

Below is the extremely long list of winners.
