It's our pleasure to pass along some good news: Plastics News' Web site recently was named as a finalist in the Jesse H. Neal Awards competition. The awards, sponsored by American Business Media, honor excellence in business journalism.
We included our China site, which reports news in simplified Chinese and English to readers in Asia, as part of our entry.
The winner in our category was Aviation Week Intelligence Network (www.aviationweek.com/awin).
Three of our sister Crain books earned finalist honors. Waste News was recognized in two categories, for Best News Coverage (for its Katrina coverage) and for Best Single Issue of a Newspaper/News Tabloid. Television Week also was a finalist for Best Single Issue; and Advertising Age was a finalist three times, and won two, for Best News Coverage and Best Single Issue.
