2004 National Mag Award Finalists
 / 

Because I’m back, and having been away for a while I felt the need to do a public service to the world of the Internet, and I love magazine journalism, here are all the links I could find to the articles nominated for a National Magazine Award. (Compiled before I realized Cursor did the exact same thing, only not for all the categories. D’oh!) No link means I couldn’t find it online; if you can, tell me. Whenever possible, I’ve linked to any free version I could find online (even the ghetto ones), but if it’s in brackets, you need a subscription to view it.
