Neal National Business Journalism Awards were created by American Business Media in 1955 to recognize and reward editorial excellence in independent business publications. The awards are named after American Business Media's (formerly American Business Publications) first managing director, who remained active in promoting the business press throughout his life. The steady growth in the number of entries, from the initial 22 to 1,168 this year, is a testament to the growth of American Business Media and the prestige of the awards. The awards now reflect the changing face of b-to-b media by including an award for online journalism.ABM Recognizes Journalistic Integrity at Neal Awards
