Washington, D.C. (March 8, 2023) – The Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) announces today finalists for the 69th Jesse H. Neal Awards – the premier awards program honoring business-to-business (B2B) journalism. Winners will be announced during the Neal Awards Ceremony to be held at the New York Marriott Marquis, New York, NY on April 21, 2023.

“SIIA defends the First Amendment, protects against deepfakes and celebrates the best of B2B journalism. Today, we are honored to announce the finalists for this year’s Neal Awards recognizing journalistic excellence,” said SIIA President Chris Mohr. “When we gathered at BIMS, the biggest B2B journalism conference last month, we had the opportunity to network and toast the inspiring work being produced by many of this year’s finalists.”

Representing a complete range of digital and traditional content disciplines, 215 Neal Award finalists were carefully selected following a comprehensive and rigorous evaluation process by peer professionals.  For a full list of the Neal Award finalists, please visit here.

A total of 59 winners will be announced at the April 21st ceremony, culminating in the Grand Neal Award, honoring the most outstanding entry from among the winners in all categories. A panel of 136 judges reviewed the finalists in three stages to select the winners in 24 categories.

The Neal Awards also will honor the recipients of four special recognition Leadership Awards, including the prestigious Marianne Dekker Mattera Award for dedicated mentoring; the G.D. Crain Jr. Award for distinguished editorial career; Timothy White Award for exemplary leadership in the face of challenges and pressures; and the McAllister Editorial Fellowship, given to an editor who will teach journalism at Northwestern University’s prestigious Medill School of Journalism.
