It seems every August or September, I’m writing about journalism awards racked up by colleague Steve Finlay, and this year is no different.
(Read more about them here: Ward’s Wins Four 2009 Editorial Awards From ASBPE.)
As he did in 2008, Steve won a national gold award this year in the American Society of Business Publication Editors annual editorial excellence contest.
He won the gold for two columns he wrote in 2008 about automotive financing and leasing. Steve didn’t stop with the gold, however. He also won the bronze national award for two other columns. Just like last year, four out of 12 of Steve’s columns won awards.
Other Ward’s editors – Barbara McClellan, editor of WardsAuto.com and Drew Winter, editor-in-chief of Ward’s AutoWorld won regional awards in the ASPBE contest.
Yours truly was shut out again – apparently I have some improving to do. And, no, I’m not jealous – Right.
