IDG, ALM Lead Neal Award Winners

CSO wins Grand Neal.

NEW YORK—IDG and ALM Media dominated the field at the 54th annual Neal Awards, announced during a luncheon ceremony here today at the Waldorf=Astoria.

IDG's CSO won the Grand Neal for an article entitled "Red Gold Rush." IDG won seven Neal Awards in all, including PC World's Techlog for "Best Staff-Written Editorial," a category in which it was competing against itself-all three nominees were owned by IDG.

ALM, which had been nominated for 12 Neals, won five.

Individual award winners included Hanley Wood editorial director Boyce Thompson, who won the 2008 Crain Award for editorial excellence in business media, and DVM Newsmagazine editor-in-chief Daniel Verdo, who won the 2008 McCallister Editorial Fellowship.

"The job of the editor is changing," American Business Media president Gordon Hughes said. "I don't have to tell you that."

"As an editor, you're under pressure to tell the truth," said Thompson, noting that revenue in the residential housing industry has plummeted in recent years but "[Hanley Wood] haven't been hurt nearly as badly."

Harry McCracken, vice president and editor-in-chief of IDG's PC World (and one of three judges for the Crain award), was honored with the Timothy White award for upholding editorial standards and integrity. Said McCracken: "It's your job as an editor to earn and keep the trust of the readers. Period."

Curiouslyor perhaps indicative of the volatile state of the print businessno awards were given in the category of "Best Startup Publication."
