It is considered the highest honor for business-to-business magazines in the United States.
The award-winning entry was for the October, November 2005 news coverage following hurricanes Katrina and Rita that ripped through the Gulf Coast. DVM Newsmagazine's editorial team walked away with the honors from American Business Media (ABM) at New York City's historic Waldorf-Astoria in late March. The winning editorial team includes: Daniel R. Verdon, editor, Jennifer Fiala, senior editor; David Frabotta, managing editor; Jessica L. Tremayne, associate editor; Bill Joyce, senior graphic designer; Lecia Landis, designer; and Mark Eisler, director of electronic communications for AVHC.
"Veterinarians played such an important role in the recovery of these storms; our goal was to document and share their stories," Verdon says. "This award was quite an honor, and it's one we proudly share with the often heroic recovery efforts of veterinarians following these storms."
DVM Newsmagazine's coverage included 14 published stories, two e-newsletters, exclusive news photography, and a trip into the flood zone by Senior Editor Jennifer Fiala and Verdon. A photo gallery was prominently displayed on DVM's Web site showcasing unpublished photographs to help readers visualize damage and recovery efforts.
In addition, the board of judges named the publication a finalist in the category for "Best Single Issue" of a newspaper/news tabloid for its October 2005 publication.
ABM's judging panel, chaired by Marshall Loeb, columnist, Market-Watch from Dow Jones, selected 32 Neal Award winners from the 101 finalists from an original 1,250 entries.
"These journalists and editors deserve high praise indeed. Their expertise, skill and successful track records of informing the industry on issues of importance place them at the forefront of their fields," says Gordon T. Hughes II, ABM president and CEO.
