Business Journal Wins L.A. Press Club Awards

San Fernando Valley Business Journal won first place in two categories at the 2014 SoCal Journalism Awards, presented Sunday night by the Los Angeles Press Club. In the under 50,000 circulation division, the Business Journal’s Robert Landry won best design for the cover story “Model Millennials” published in the Nov. 25 issue. Also, real estate reporter Elliot Golan won for best business story with “Sour Dough,” a profile of a startup bakery partnership that went bad. It was published in the May 27, 2013 issue. The judges said the story “stood out because it was unique and had good reporting and structure.” Reporter Mark Madler placed second in two separate categories. “Public Enemy No. 1,” a story about AIDS Healthcare Foundation’s Michael Weinstein’s fight to mandate condoms in adult films, came in second for personality profile. “Byte Sized Revolution,” about the transition to digital technology in the film industry, placed second for entertainment feature. The Los Angeles Press Club is a trade organization for journalists at newspapers, magazines, radio, television, and the Internet.
