IBJ wins 9 national journalism awards

IBJ was named third-best large-market business publication and collected eight other national awards at the Alliance of Area Business Publications’ summer conference June 27 in Minneapolis.

It was the fourth consecutive year the newspaper has been in the top three, including winning gold in 2007. This year’s top prize went to Los Angeles Business Journal, and silver went to Crain’s Chicago Business.
