IBJ won seven national journalism awards at the Alliance of Area Business Publications’ summer conference June 25 in Providence, R.I.

Judges from the University of Missouri’s School of Journalism evaluated 487 entries from 45 publications, including newspapers in Los Angeles, New York and Chicago. All told, 108 gold, silver or bronze awards were handed out.

IBJ brought home gold in two categories, including best investigative reporting for Cory Schouten’s April 2010 special report on former Marion County Prosecutor Carl Brizzi’s intervention in a major drug case against the client of one of his business partners.

Citing the “impressive combination of documents and on-the-record human sources,” judges called the story “a classic piece of investigative reporting that uncovers a clear conflict of interests by the prosecuting attorney.”

Managing Editor Greg Andrews also won top honors for his weekly “Behind the News” column. “This is a well-written, fact-driven column, based on strong reporting,” the judges said.

IBJ’s other prizes:

• Silver. Best industry-specific e-newsletter for reporter J.K. Wall’s Health Care & Reform Weekly e-mail.

• Bronze. Best website for IBJ.com.

• Bronze. Best multimedia story/editorial feature for Multimedia Producer Mason King’s videos that ran with a February 2010 profile of Scotty’s Brewhouse owner Scott Wise.

• Bronze. Best use of photography, illustrations for a collection of entries submitted by the IBJ art department under the guidance of Creative Director Deborah Strzeszkowski.

• Bronze. Best front page for designer/illustrator David Vrabel and former Creative Director Jo Hohlbein. They were honored for an April 2010 design that included an illustration of Biglari Holdings CEO Sardar Biglari and his business idol, Warren Buffett.

Los Angeles-based AABP is a national organization representing 64 independent magazine and newspaper members in the United States, Canada and Australia.

IBJ also won a national prize in April at the Society of American Business Editors and Writers’ conference in Dallas. King’s biweekly “Inside Dish” video features on the business of running restaurants earned a “Best in Business” award.•

  1. I never thought I'd see the day when a Republican Mayor would lead the charge in attempting to raise every tax we have to pay. Now it's income taxes and property taxes that Ballard wants to increase. And to pay for a pre-K program? Many studies have shown that pre-K offer no long-term educational benefits whatsoever. And Ballard is pitching it as a way of fighting crime? Who is he kidding? It's about government provided day care. It's a shame that we elected a Republican who has turned out to be a huge big spending, big taxing, big borrowing liberal Democrat.

  2. Why do we blame the unions? They did not create the 11 different school districts that are the root of the problem.

  3. I was just watching an AOW race from cleveland in 1997...in addition to the 65K for the race, there were more people in boats watching that race from the lake than were IndyCar fans watching the 2014 IndyCar season finale in the Fontana grandstands. Just sayin...That's some resurgence modern IndyCar has going. Almost profitable, nobody in the grandstands and TV ratings dropping 61% at some tracks in the series. Business model..."CRAZY" as said by a NASCAR track general manager. Yup, this thing is purring like a cat! Sponsors...send them your cash, pronto!!! LOL, not a chance.

  4. I'm sure Indiana is paradise for the wealthy and affluent, but what about the rest of us? Over the last 40 years, conservatives and the business elite have run this country (and state)into the ground. The pendulum will swing back as more moderate voters get tired of Reaganomics and regressive social policies. Add to that the wave of minority voters coming up in the next 10 to 15 years and things will get better. unfortunately we have to suffer through 10 more years of gerrymandered districts and dispropionate representation.

  5. Funny thing....rich people telling poor people how bad the other rich people are wanting to cut benefits/school etc and that they should vote for those rich people that just did it. Just saying..............
