The staff of www.Porkmag.com won a national business journalism award for editorial achievement this week in New York City.



Editor Marlys Miller, Associate Editor Jane Messenger and Electronic Media Editor James Arnold -- members of the editorial staff of Vance Publishing Corp.'s Food360 division -- were honored with a Neal Award at the 52nd Annual Jesse H. Neal National Business Journalism Awards luncheon at the Waldorf=Astoria. Their site was named Best Web site in category 1.



Porkmag.com is the Web arm of Pork magazine, which was started in 1981 to provide business-focused information for the U.S. pork production industry. During that 25-year period, Pork editors have now received 10 Neal Awards and have been finalists an additional five times in the annual competition presented by American Business Media.



The judging panel -- chaired by Marshall Loeb, a columnist on MarketWatch for Dow Jones -- selected 32 Neal Award winners out of 101 finalists from an original 1,250 entries. The Jesse H. Neal National Business Journalism Awards have been called "the Pulitzer Prize of the business press."
