The first-annual media awards by shelter blog Curbed National were announced last week.

The "Powerful Poacher Award" went to Margaret Russell/Architectural Digest; Deborah Needleman/WSJ. Magazine for snagging many of her old Domino colleagues; and Newell Turner/House Beautiful for pulling Shax Reigler as features editor.

"The Award For Making Things Happen in Digital Shelter Media" went to Martha Stewart Living for its iPad-only issue entitled "Boundless Beauty"; Rue for launching the first direct competitor to Lonny in the field of online-only shelter magazines; The New York Observer for the digital edition of its biannual HOME magazine; and Lonny and Cottages & Gardens for website revamps.

The "Most Likely to Succeed Award" went to Veranda's new editor in chief Dara Caponigro for implementing prices in the front-of-book product pages; House Beautiful's editor in chief Newell Turner for his eye; and Architectural Digest's Margaret Russell for her first issue (January 2010), which should include a varied presentation of feature stories.
