The 2015 Neal Awards were announced in New York City today, and we at ARCHITECT are deeply honored to have come out of the banquet with a win, taking home the trophy for Best Use of Social Media. One of the most important things we do around here is to stay connected to you, our readers, and the most effective way to do so is through social media. That's why we diligently post, update, and share everything that we think would be of interest to you each and every day.
In addition, we were nominated in four other Neal Award categories this year. While we didn't win in those, we are still honored and appreciative to be recognized. In the Best Media Brand category, we were honored to be one of the Top 4 publications in our segment, up against some powerhouse competition. Our daily ARCHITECT Newswire was recognized in the Best Newsletter category. (Not getting it each day? Subscribe to all of our newsletters now.) Christopher Hawthorne's profile of 2014 AIA Gold Medal winner Julia Morgan was up for Best Profile. And the splendid essays from Witold Rybczynski for us were up for Best Commentary.
