IEEE Spectrum Receives Multiple High Profile Editorial Honors for Series on Re-Engineering Iraq

5 April – IEEE Spectrum was honored by American Business Media’s Jessie H. Neal National Business Journalism Awards with three recognitions for editorial excellence. A series of articles by executive editor Glenn Zorpette on “Re-engineering Iraq” (IEEE Spectrum, February 2006 and March 2006) won a Neal Award and the Grand Neal Award from among the competition’s more than 1,000 entries. Created by American Business Media in 1955 to recognize independent business publications, The Neal Award is considered the “Pulitzer Prize of the business press.” For both publications and editors, this prestigious award is the industry’s highest honor and reward for excellence. Zorpette also was named the 13th recipient of the 2007 McAllister Editorial Fellowship, given annually to an editor to promote the study of business media. 

The same series of articles received a National Magazine Award nomination in the Reporting category from The American Society for Magazine Editors, the consumer-magazine equivalent of the Academy Awards. The Reporting category honors the enterprise, exclusive reporting and intelligent analysis that a magazine exhibits in covering an event, a situation or a problem of contemporary interest and significance. Other finalists in the Reporting category include Esquire, Fortune, Rolling Stone and Time. The awards will be presented on the evening of 1 May at the Time Warner Center in New York.
