Winning ways is same old news

WA Business News has again won key awards for business newspaper publishing, taking out the bronze for Best Newspaper – small tabloids, and a bronze for Best Scoop.

It is the third time in four years that your only Perth-based business newspaper has placed third in the best newspaper category for small regional publications.

It is also the second time a WA Business News scoop has been awarded – with reporter Joe Poprzeczny’s story on the Yarragadee water option taking the prize. The story appeared during the 2005 state election campaign, two weeks before daily rival The West Australian noted the existence of this option on its front page.

There were a total of 680 entries from 61 publications in 28 categories in the awards run by the Alliance of Area Business Publications, which includes regional-focused newspapers and magazines from the US, Canada, Mexico and Australia.

“To again be measured and judged against the best in the world in our field of publishing and to be recognised and awarded a bronze for best newspaper for the third time now is an amazing record and a credit to all our team at WA Business News,” publisher Harry Kleyn said.

The judge coordinating the contest, Professor Daryl Moen from the University of Missouri School of Journalism, said of WA Business News:

“An ambitious publication with a strong emphasis on public affairs coverage. Good use of indicator lists and other breakout material. Consistent design with solid photography and effective use of color.”

Regarding Mr Poprzeczny’s article, the judges said: “A strong piece of enterprise reporting that tackles a key issue in the daily life of Western Australians.”
