Loewe Announces Finalists for Second Edition of Craft Prize

PARIS — The second edition of the Loewe Craft Prize is set to cement its reputation as a magnet for the most avant-garde work in the field, with creations ranging from a blown glass sphere more than one meter wide to a ceramic bowl covered in red Ferrari car paint.
The brainchild of Loewe creative director Jonathan Anderson, the prize run by the Loewe Foundation drew close to 1,900 submissions from more than 75 countries.
Loewe on Thursday named the 30 finalists, and the winner — to be revealed on May 3 — will walk away with 50,000 euros. The list includes entries from as far afield as Japan, South Korea, China, Russia, Singapore, Chile, the U.S., Poland and the U.K., among others.
“The level has gone up, in terms of the types of people applying, ranging from amazing new people who you’ve never heard of, who are making things that are just fantastic, to incredibly well-known names,” said Anderson, noting the presence of established artists like Jennifer Lee and Takuro Kuwata, who both specialize in ceramics.
While the number of submissions is down by about half from the first edition, the designer sees this as a positive development. “It’s interesting that the level

ASME Announces Finalists For 2015 National Magazine Awards

The American Society of Magazine Editors revealed the nominees for its annual National Magazine Awards during an hour-long Twittercast Thursday.

A total of 66 outlets were nominated across two dozen categories, with publications competing for distinctions in everything from reporting to fiction to design to video. Better Homes and Gardens, Cosmopolitan, The Hollywood Reporter, New York and Vogue, however, are the five publications in the running for the group’s most esteemed award, Magazine of the Year. Bloomberg Businessweek, GQ, The New York Times Magazine, The Atlantic, Politico and The New Republic are also among the magazines to receive multiple nominations.

“The National Magazine Awards 2015 finalists demonstrate the enduring power of magazine journalism in print and on websites and mobile,” Sid Holt, chief executive of ASME, said in a statement. “Whether it’s politics, fashion, sports or the kind of service journalism that only magazines can do, readers know that their favorite print and digital magazines are where to find information and entertainment they can trust.”

A handful of memorable articles are also up for top prizes. Monica Lewinsky’s “Shame and Survival,” for Vanity Fair, and Ta-Nehisi Coates’ long-form cover story “The Case for Reparations,” for The Atlantic, are both finalists for ASME’s Essays and Criticism award, which “honors interpretative and critical journalism.”
