The Atlantic is a finalist for five 2010 National Magazine Awards, the best-in-industry honors awarded each May by the American Society of Magazine Editors. In addition to the four stories listed below, The Atlantic is a nominee for Magazine of the Year, an award given to the publication that excels both in print and in digital. The honors will be announced at a ceremony in New York on May 10.

(Last month, in a separate ceremony, TheAtlantic.com was one of five finalists for General Excellence/Digital. Slate won that award.)

The following stories are finalists this year:
