Proud and Honored
At BUSINESS WEEK, we strive to give our readers thoughtful and insightful analysis that they are simply not able to get anywhere else. That's why we are honored to report that BUSINESS WEEK has been named a finalist for the National Magazine Awards in the category of issues devoted to a single topic. The winner of the award will be announced on Apr. 28.
This year, we were cited for our groundbreaking special double issue in August, 1998, on "The 21st Century Economy." BUSINESS WEEK Economics Editor Michael J. Mandel led a team of more than 30 reporters and editors in exploring the future of the economy over the next 10 years. The issue included 20 stories, examining nearly every aspect of the changing U.S. economy--from the coming of nano-technology to new management models to key policy issues such as the global economy, education, and immigration.
The latest nomination continues BUSINESS WEEK's striking record of consistency in the National Magazine Awards, the most important honors in the magazine world. In the general excellence category, for example, the magazine has been a finalist 5 times in the past 8 years, and 8 times out of the past 13. We won the general excellence prize in 1994 and 1996. No other business magazine comes close to this outstanding performance.
We are proud to have this recognition of our journalistic excellence. But the real benefits go to you, our readers.By Stephen B Shepard, Editor-in-Chief
