Washington Technology and Government Computer News, two newspapers published by Post Newsweek Tech Media, were honored as finalists in a national business journalism contest yesterday.
The Jesse H. Neal award certificates were presented by American Business Media, a New York industry association for business-to-business information providers, including magazines, Web sites and trade shows.
Washington Technology was a finalist for "best single article" in the category for publications with $3 million to $7 million in annual revenue for its Oct. 21, 2002, reporting on "Network-Centric Warfare" and new defense opportunities.
GCN was a finalist for "best single issue" for its Feb. 18, 2002, edition, which included coverage of federal government IT budget proposals and a management report on systems modernization efforts.
The awards "attest to the enthusiasm and talent of our editorial and art people, and to the climate of excellence and continuous improvement at Post Newsweek," Thomas R. Temin, executive editor and senior vice president, said in a memo to staff members this morning.
This year's contest brought 1,093 entries from business publications across the country. The award is named for the first managing director of what is now ABM.
