Mental Floss is in the running for a National Magazine Award. The American Society of Magazine Editors released a list of nominees last week.
The Birmingham-based publication is competing in Special Interest Magazines against the Harvard Business Review, the Hollywood Reporter, Inc. and Texas Monthly. Mental Floss also earned a nomination in 2013 in the same category; Outside won that year.
Magazines in Birmingham have been finalists over the years, but none have taken home the Ellie.
Mental Floss publishes nine times a year offering a mix of facts and trivia with a humorous slant.
The National Magazine Awards take place Feb. 2 in New York.
