The Business Journal received three awards in a journalism competition on June 23, highlighting the best work from business publications across the country.

The Alliance of Area Business Publishers awarded the Business Journal gold as “Most Improved Publication”.

The Business Journal also won a silver award for best supplementary publication for its 2020 Wealthiest Angelenos special edition.

Veteran business journalist Howard Fine also won a silver award for best work by a single author.

“Receiving multiple awards from such a prestigious organization is not just an honor but a testament to the efforts and dedication of the entire Business Journal team,” said Scott Robson, Editor-in-Chief of the Los Angeles Business Journal.

“Our editors, reporters and production staff have worked tirelessly over the past year in the face of unprecedented challenges to deliver world-class coverage and dramatically improve the quality of our coverage for the LA business community,” he added.

The jury consisted of lecturers from the University of Missouri School of Journalism.

The judges named the wealthiest edition of Angelenos because it featured fascinating brief portraits of local billionaires along with charts and graphs.

“The Business Journal team is particularly pleased to be honored for our special issue, Wealthiest Angelenos. This signature publication requires great attention to detail, great reporting and writing, and great design. Getting rewarded for that hard work is something we are all proud of, ”said Robson.

The judges said Fine was “mine unpredictable terrain to find stories that surprise and satisfy,” citing his contributions on how Los Angeles glass companies gathered to board up shop windows during the social justice protests in 2020, and how Fulgent Genetics became a Covid-19 juggernaut test.

“Howard is not only our longest-serving reporter, he’s also one of our best. The recognition of his work over the past year only shows how important his contributions are to the Business Journal and our readers, ”said Robson.

The San Fernando Valley Business Journal, a sister publication, also received three awards from the AABP. It won gold for Best Newspaper and Best Design in the Small Tabloid category, while Charlie Crumpley won gold for Best Bylined Commentary.
