39 and Feeling Fine
New Orleans media outlets compete every year for the distinction of being named among the best in the local industry. The Press Club of New Orleans awards various organizations and professionals for their impressive published work, including digital media, print news, public relations campaigns, TV and radio broadcasts.
This year, as in the past, submissions are sent to Press Club members in different cities throughout the country, who then judge and nominate the best entries from New Orleans in each category.
The annual Excellence in Journalism Awards is July 8 and our staff will be present to see what honors we take home.
This year, Errol Laborde and his team of editors and art directors have amassed 39 finalist slots in various categories — the most we have ever had in our history. As a matter of fact, this year we have more finalist nominations than any other media company in the city. Outstanding!
The entire company is so proud of our editorial team for leading New Orleans in awards for Excellence in Journalism. Producing award-winning content that speaks directly to our readers is what we take great pride in at Renaissance Publishing, which makes this a significant recognition.
In the age of media tweets coming to you from all kinds of news sources, on July 8 look for some tweet results from @BizNewOrleans and updates on BizNewOrleans.com as the awards are handed out. By the way, we are the finalist to sweep the Twitter category nominations this year: Great work team!
