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. I had read earlier this spring that Noodles & Co was going to open in the Fishers Marketplace (which is SR 37 and 131st St, not 141st St, just FYI). Any word on that? Also, do you happen to know what is being built in Carmel at Pennsylvania and Old Meridian? May just be an office building but I'm not sure.

  2. I'm sorry, but you are flat out wrong. There are few tracks in the world with the history of IMS and probably NO OTHER as widely known and recognized. I don't care what you think about the stat of Indy Car racing, these are pretty hard things to dispute.

  3. Also wondering if there is an update on the Brockway Pub-Danny Boy restaurant/taproom that was planned for the village as well?

  4. Why does the majority get to trample on the rights of the minority? You do realize that banning gay marriage does not rid the world of gay people, right? They are still going to be around and they are still going to continue to exist. The best way to get it all out of the spotlight? LEGALIZE IT! If gay marriage is legal, they will get to stop trying to push for it and you will get to stop seeing it all over the news. Why do Christians get to decide what is moral?? Why do you get to push your religion on others? How would legalizing gay marriage expose their lifestyle to your children? By the way, their lifestyle is going to continue whether gay marriage is legalized or not. It's been legal in Canada for quite a while now and they seem to be doing just fine. What about actual rules handed down by God? What about not working on Sundays? What about obeying your parents? What about adultery? These are in the 10 Commandments, the most important of God's rules. Yet they are all perfectly legal. What about divorce? Only God is allowed to dissolve a marriage so why don't you work hard to get divorce banned? Why do you get to pick and choose the parts of the Bible you care about?

  5. Look at the bright side. With the new Lowe's call center, that means 1000 jobs at $10 bucks an hour. IMS has to be drooling over all that disposable income. If those employees can save all their extra money after bills, in five years they can go to the race LIVE. Can you say attendance boost?
