The Jesse H. Neal Awards are the most prestigious editorial honors in the field of specialized journalism. Named after Jesse H. Neal, the first managing director of American Business Media, the Neal Awards were established in 1955 to recognize and reward editorial excellence in business media.

The work highlighted by today's Neal Awards nominations shows how we cover the most important trends and storylines in the markets we serve — and the impact the best journalism in b2b can have on its readership."
