Publication takes first place for General Excellence
NH Business Review received six awards, including first place in the General Excellence category for non-daily newspapers, in the New Hampshire Press Association’s 2020 Excellence in Journalism Awards, which were presented virtually Sept. 23.
In addition, staff writer Bob Sanders won three awards, including first place for Business and Economy Reporting for his ongoing coverage of how the Covid-19 pandemic affected the state’s businesses and economy. He received another first-place honor in the Health Reporting category for his article, “The Canadian conundrum,” which looked at the difficulties in importing lower-cost prescription drugs from Canada, and he won second place in the Investigative Story or Series category for his article, “Where did the $40 million in Covid contracts go?”
Also honored was Liisa Rajala, whose article, “Now is the time: Black Granite Staters call for a more inclusive New Hampshire,” written in the wake of George Floyd’s murder, won second place in the General News category. And John Angelo’s article, “People of the book: The literary treasures found, and searched for, in NH’s used bookstores,” won second place in the Feature Story category.
The Granite State News Collaborative, of which NH Business Review is a member, also was honored for several of the articles and series it produced in 2020.
