The American Society for Magazine Editors has announced their annual list of nominations for the year's best in magazine journalism. In addition to the winners they will choose behind closed doors, starting today they give you the opportunity to vote for the best cover of 2011, and the odds are heavily in favor of a naked lady for the win.

Here's the breakdown: Of the 13 nominees, there are five women, four men, one face made out of common cold remedies, one display of juices, one flower, and one deconstructed sandwich. Of the five women, four are naked/in bikinis, and of the naked/bikinied women, three are heavily sideboobed, one full frontal via an x-ray, and one is preggers (it's not Jessica Simpson, though). You can vote for your favorite by heading here.
