IBJ won eight awards at the Alliance of Area Business Publications’ summer conference Saturday in Indianapolis.

Judges from the University of Missouri's School of Journalism evaluated 555 entries from 47 publications, including papers in Los Angeles, New York and Chicago. All told, 107 gold, silver or bronze awards were handed out.

IBJ won gold awards in three categories, including best daily e-mail.

In honoring IBJ Daily, judges wrote that it “provides a wealth of business news and information in a tidy summary that is easily digestible.”

Other IBJ gold medal winners:

• Best staff-generated blog for The Score, written by sports-business reporter Anthony Schoettle.

• Best newspaper front page for a collection of entries submitted by the IBJ art department under the guidance of former Creative Director Jo Hohlbein.

IBJ's other prizes:

• Silver. Best investigative reporting for real estate reporter Cory Schouten’s “Simon Says, City Does” story examining the relationship between the city and Simon family.

• Silver. Best coverage of local breaking news for health care reporter J.K. Wall’s online and print coverage of Eli Lilly and Co.’s plans to lay off 5,500 employees and restructure the company.

• Silver. Best recurring feature for Managing Editor Greg Andrews’ weekly Behind the News column.

• Silver. Best website for IBJ.com.
 
• Bronze. Best feature layout for a Construction/Design/Engineering Focus cover.

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

Also this month, IBJ was honored by Editor and Publisher magazine with one of its coveted EPpy interactive awards. IBJ.com was named best newspaper-affiliated website with fewer than 1 million unique monthly visitors. The site also was a finalist in the best business website category. The EPpys were handed out June 17 in Las Vegas.

    IBJ's journalism awards are very well deserved IMHO. I receive comparable daily business journal emails from a handful of cities. IBJ's layout and article summaries are the best. And I really cannot remember any of the other publications doing the kind of indepth reporting that the IBJ regularly does for its on-line readers. Congratulations.

  1. With Pence running the ship good luck with a new government building on the site. He does everything on the cheap except unnecessary roads line a new beltway( like we need that). Things like state of the art office buildings and light rail will never be seen as an asset to these types. They don't get that these are the things that help a city prosper.

  2. Does the $100,000,000,000 include salaries for members of Congress?

  3. "But that doesn't change how the piece plays to most of the people who will see it." If it stands out so little during the day as you seem to suggest maybe most of the people who actually see it will be those present when it is dark enough to experience its full effects.

  4. That's the mentality of most retail marketers. In this case Leo was asked to build the brand. HHG then had a bad sales quarter and rather than stay the course, now want to go back to the schlock that Zimmerman provides (at a considerable cut in price.) And while HHG salesmen are, by far, the pushiest salesmen I have ever experienced, I believe they are NOT paid on commission. But that doesn't mean they aren't trained to be aggressive.

  5. The reason HHG's sales team hits you from the moment you walk through the door is the same reason car salesmen do the same thing: Commission. HHG's folks are paid by commission they and need to hit sales targets or get cut, while BB does not. The sales figures are aggressive, so turnover rate is high. Electronics are the largest commission earners along with non-needed warranties, service plans etc, known in the industry as 'cheese'. The wholesale base price is listed on the cryptic price tag in the string of numbers near the bar code. Know how to decipher it and you get things at cost, with little to no commission to the sales persons. Whether or not this is fair, is more of a moral question than a financial one.
