Publisher’s Note: A Winning Summer

Last month, the staff of Biz New Orleans went to Atlanta and took home gold.

The Alliance of Area Business Publishers held its annual national conference and awards gala in June, during which our Biz team received two gold awards for journalism—one for Best Reoccurring Feature for our “Why Didn’t I Think of That?” monthly feature, and one for Best Explanatory Journalism for our cover feature in the May 2018 Women’s Issue on the Status of Women in Business in Louisiana. This marks three years in a row that our team has been recognized nationally for the great work they produce month after month. Not bad for a title that’s only five years old.

On the local front, in July Renaissance Publishing also took home more than 25 awards at the annual Press Club of New Orleans Excellence in Journalism Gala. Our titles, Louisiana Life, Acadiana Profile, New Orleans Magazine, Biz New Orleans, St. Charles Avenue and our blogs and websites— and—won in numerous categories. Congratulations!

In today’s media landscape, you the reader have to find a source you can trust and follow that does great work. We are proud to be that kind of source for you locally and I am so proud of our team for continuing to produce excellent stories and grow our readership.

Congratulations to our team of writers, photographers, graphic artists and editors for creating award-winning content for New Orleans and Louisiana.

Great work.
