Hartford, CT (PRWEB) July 07, 2011
Hartford Business Journal, the only audited weekly, subscription-based business publication in Connecticut, recently received two Silver Editorial Excellence Awards from The Alliance of Area Business Publications (AABP).
The annual Editorial Excellence Awards competition recognizes excellence in journalism, photography and design achieved by regional business publications. Judges are comprised of faculty members from the University of Missouri School of Journalism, with qualifications in respective areas. Hartford Business Journal’s winning entries were chosen among 487 entries from 45 publications nationwide.
“We are honored to have been recognized among so many outstanding publications from across the U.S.,” said Gail Lebert, publisher of the Hartford Business Journal. “Hartford Business Journal is committed to serving as the voice of the local business community and covering the stories that impact those working throughout Greater Hartford in print and online.”
AABP honored Hartford Business Journal with two silver awards – one in the ‘Best Scoop: Small Tabloids’ category and the other for ‘Best Local Coverage of a National Business/Economy Story.’
In the ‘Best Scoop: Small Tabloids’ category, AABP recognized Greg Bordonaro’s story on Hartford Healthcare. “Deals are hard to sniff out, but Greg Bordonaro discovered that Hartford Healthcare was looking to buy an outpatient eye surgery center. His front-page story of a $27.5 million deal was miles ahead of the competition,” AABP said.
In the ‘Best Local Coverage of a National Business/Economy Story’ category, AABP recognized editor Norm Bell and his team’s efforts in the ‘Miles to Go’ series. “In a series of stories that stretched from postcard New England to Connecticut's troubled economic areas, the Hartford Business Journal's staff did an excellent job of capturing the voices of the recession. The series, entitled "Miles to Go," is well executed and contains a lot of diversity in sources, economic status and geography. The story line, set along Route 5, was well illustrated with wonderful nuggets of information, strong photos and graphics,” AABP said.
