Oregon Business magazine has been named one of the top 10 small business publications in the country by the national American Society of Business Publication Editors, which also awarded five additional honors to the magazine for excellence in writing and design.

The magazine took national honors in ASBPE’s annual Magazine of the Year competition, which judged publications for their writing, reporting, editing, usefulness to readers and design. The small category was for publications under $2 million in revenue. The magazine also was awarded a national silver award for its use of informational graphics, based on its April 2009 issue.

Oregon Business also won three gold awards and one silver award for excellence in writing and design in ASBPE’s Western region competition.

Those awards included a gold award for best feature article for Oregon Business managing editor Ben Jacklet’s November 2009 story titled “What Now? The daunting challenge of reviving Oregon’s timber towns.” Jacklet also won a silver award for best organization profile for his September 2009 story “Inside Intel.”

January 2009 coverThe magazine also won two gold awards for best cover design for its January 2009 cover titled “The Bicycle Industrial Complex,” and for its April 2009 cover, “The $18 billion shadow economy.” Both covers were art directed by Martin Gee, and Portland photographer Anthony Pidgeon shot the April bicycle cover photo.

This is the second year in a row that ASBPE has named Oregon Business one of the top business publications in the nation. The magazine also this year won four first-place awards from the Society of Professional Journalist for excellence in reporting and design.

I've been reading Oregon Business since first coming to Portland in 1984, and I can honestly say it just keeps getting better -- better reporting, better writing, better visual presentation, better story selection and better journalistic standards. Bravo on a job well done!

The magazine is doing great. At a time when other media outlets are lowering the standard Oregon Business is raising it. Keep up the good work!
