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. From the story: "The city of Indianapolis also will consider tax incentives and funding for infrastructure required for the project, according to IEDC." Why would the City need to consider additional tax incentives when Lowe's has already bought the land and reached an agreement with IEDC to bring the jobs? What that tells me is that the City has already pledged the incentives, unofficially, and they just haven't had time to push it through the MDC yet. Either way, subsidizing $10/hour jobs is going to do nothing toward furthering the Mayor's stated goal of attracting middle and upper-middle class residents to Marion County.

  2. Ron Spencer and the entire staff of Theater on the Square embraced IndyFringe when it came to Mass Ave in 2005. TOTS was not only a venue but Ron and his friends created, presented and appeared in shows which embraced the 'spirit of the fringe'. He's weathered all the storms and kept smiling ... bon voyage and thank you.

  3. Not sure how many sushi restaurants are enough, but there are three that I know of in various parts of downtown proper and all are pretty good.

  4. First off, it's "moron," not "moran." 2nd, YOU don't get to vote on someone else's rights and freedoms that are guaranteed by the US Constitution. That's why this is not a state's rights issue...putting something like this to vote by, well, people like you who are quite clearly intellectually challenged isn't necessary since the 14th amendment has already decided the issue. Which is why Indiana's effort is a wasted one and a waste of money...and will be overturned just like this has in every other state.

  5. Rick, how does granting theright to marry to people choosing to marry same-sex partners harm the lives of those who choose not to? I cannot for the life of me see any harm to people who choose not to marry someone of the same sex. We understand your choice to take the parts of the bible literally in your life. That is fine but why force your religious beliefs on others? I'm hoping the judges do the right thing and declare the ban unconstitutional so all citizens of Wisconsin and Indiana have the same marriage rights and that those who chose someone of the same sex do not have less rights than others.
