PORTLAND Oregon Business has received four awards for excellence from the national Alliance of Area Business Publications.

The magazine, which has covered statewide business issues for 27 years, won the Gold Award for most improved publication against other regional business newspapers and magazines. The judges noted Oregon Business’ “striking design, bolder photography and cutting-edge content.” The magazine’s look and content was revamped last year.

Managing editor Abraham Hyatt won a Silver Award for best magazine feature for his story titled “Tribes 2.0,” which examined the post-casino economies of the state’s federally recognized tribes. The judges said he “crafted a narrative that moved beyond the obvious story of tribal involvement.”

Art director Jon Ferland, who led the redesign, won a Bronze Award for best overall magazine design, with judges noting the “good use of graphics and charts; and the pages are interesting and well designed.”

Hyatt also won a Bronze Award for best body of work for magazine writing. Those stories included the tribal story, how colleges are run more like businesses and wave energy.

“Great writing is more than prose, it’s the idea,” the judges said. “Hyatt serves up stories with an unusual twist.”

The magazine this year also won six awards for journalism excellence from the regional Society of Professional Journalists.
