IBJ wins national journalism awards

IBJ received three national journalism awards at the Society of American Business Editors and Writers’ annual conference on March 20 in Phoenix.

SABEW, a not-for-profit based at Arizona State University, launched the contest in 1995 to set standards for business journalism and recognize role models. Judges included faculty as well as professional writers and editors.

Winners were selected from 783 entries in 58 categories.

IBJ.com was one of three small Web sites honored for general excellence. Judges praised the site, which was redesigned in September, saying it “provides an accessible, innovative and sometimes surprising look into Indianapolis business with coverage that expands well beyond [IBJ's] print edition.”

Reporter Cory Schouten won in the enterprise category for his April package of stories on the Simon family’s influence in Indianapolis. A judge wrote: “In highly readable fashion, Schouten provides a detailed cost-benefit analysis that is at once revelatory and unfailingly fair.”

Managing Editor Greg Andrews was honored in the project category for his October story that uncovered trouble brewing at beleaguered businessman Tim Durham’s Fair Finance Co., now the subject of a federal probe. Judges called the piece “classic, bread-and-butter business journalism that had real impact.”

SABEW board members who convened in Phoenix for the conference voted to hold the 2012 event in Indianapolis.

    Very well deserved. It is a shame more media does not do hard news, I think people appreciate it.

  1. If I were a developer I would be looking at the Fountain Square and Fletcher Place neighborhoods instead of Broad Ripple. I would avoid the dysfunctional BRVA with all of their headaches. It's like deciding between a Blackberry or an iPhone 5s smartphone. BR is greatly in need of updates. It has become stale and outdated. Whereas Fountain Square, Fletcher Place and Mass Ave have become the "new" Broad Ripples. Every time I see people on the strip in BR on the weekend I want to ask them, "How is it you are not familiar with Fountain Square or Mass Ave? You have choices and you choose BR?" Long vacant storefronts like the old Scholar's Inn Bake House and ZA, both on prominent corners, hurt the village's image. Many business on the strip could use updated facades. Cigarette butt covered sidewalks and graffiti covered walls don't help either. The whole strip just looks like it needs to be power washed. I know there is more to the BRV than the 700-1100 blocks of Broad Ripple Ave, but that is what people see when they think of BR. It will always be a nice place live, but is quickly becoming a not-so-nice place to visit.

  2. I sure hope so and would gladly join a law suit against them. They flat out rob people and their little punk scam artist telephone losers actually enjoy it. I would love to run into one of them some day!!

  3. Biggest scam ever!! Took 307 out of my bank ac count. Never received a single call! They prey on new small business and flat out rob them! Do not sign up with these thieves. I filed a complaint with the ftc. I suggest doing the same ic they robbed you too.

  4. Woohoo! We're #200!!! Absolutely disgusting. Bring on the congestion. Indianapolis NEEDS it.

  5. So Westfield invested about $30M in developing Grand Park and attendance to date is good enough that local hotel can't meet the demand. Carmel invested $180M in the Palladium - which generates zero hotel demand for its casino acts. Which Mayor made the better decision?
