Do You “Like” National Geographic’s Magazine Covers?

If you had to pick a favorite National Geographic magazine cover, which one would it be? It’s a tough question to answer, but the American Society of Magazine Editors (ASME) is asking readers to pick their favorite magazine covers for its Best Cover Contest Reader’s Choice Award.

The contest is currently being hosted on ASME’s Facebook page through April 13th. Magazine covers in consideration for the award have been separated into categories ranging from politics to entertainment, and those cover images are posted to ASME’s official Facebook page. The covers that get the most Facebook likes in each category will be voted on again beginning March 31 to determine a final winner by April 30.
