  1. It is incredible that a magazine like flaunt is not even nominated. this is a Conde Nast/ Hearst award

  2. The “We’re All Helmut Newton Now” article’s actual title is “When Sex Becomes Un-Sexy” and the one photo it contains is by Ellen von Unwerth. So the bait and switch is a little annoying and hardly worth a prize.

    • I clicked on a few that have different titles from the ones hyperlinked here, but I think it’s not unusual for online magazines to alter titles after publication.

  3. What? Nutin for Garden and Gun?
