Maybe they need to start a special posthumous category for magazine related awards. We noted the other day that Best Life was up for an Ellie despite the fact it folded earlier this month, and Dealscape is currently reporting on the sad phenomenon of Financial Week.
You may recall that Financial Week shuttered its print edition back in December but planned to live on on the Internets — before also shutting down the website a few weeks ago. However! That hasn’t kept the mag from winning awards. As Dealscape points out Financial Week just won a number of Neal Awards Thursday including ‘Best news coverage’ and here’s a kicker, ‘Best Web site.’ The lesson here? Actually we’re not sure there is a lesson other than a lot of good smart people are (hopefully temporarily) losing their jobs in this Great Media Transition we seem to be undergoing, and with any luck will be out of sooner than later.
