CIO magazine is honored to announce that it won the award for Best Media Brand, or what judges called “the highest accolade in journalism” on Friday.
The Jesse H. Neal Awards, named after Connectiv’s first managing director, are dubbed “the most prestigious editorial honors in the field of specialized journalism.”
The Best Brand category was judged by how clearly it aligned its editorial mission, presentation, service to readers, innovation, and use of multiple content platforms to serve its audience. The 17-category contest had more than 550 entries and a two-tiered screening process with more than 150 judges and a final board evaluation by Connectiv.
CIO magazine also won the best single article award, for the article “The Departed.” Judges said, “This profile of an investor who disappeared after defrauding his clients and friends reads like a tightly paced thriller. Wonderful writing and gorgeous illustrations to back it up.”
