Medical Economics’ 100th anniversary issue wins award in business publication contest


Neal Award is nation’s oldest prize for business-to-business content creators.

Medical Economics has won a 2024 Jesse H. Neal Award, the nation’s oldest and most prestigious contest for business-to-business content creators.

The magazine was nominated for its October 2023 issue commemorating its 100th anniversary. The award was for the contest’s “Best Single Issue of a Tabloid/Newspaper/Magazine” category for publications with brand revenue between $3 million and $7 million.

Begun in 1954, the Neal Award is an annual competition that encompasses both journalism and design excellence in the business-to-business space. This year’s competition has 212 finalists in 25 categories.

Titled “Celebrating a century of physician excellence,” the issue features sections on how and why medical practice has evolved during the past century, the most significant scientific discoveries and inventions in medicine, and a lighthearted look at how doctors have been portrayed in entertainment and popular culture.

Also included are an interview with a still-practicing 101-year-old physician, a comparison of the tools doctors used a century ago and today, a photo montage portraying the life of a country doctor in the 1940s, and more.

The 100th anniversary coverage is posted online.

This is Medical Economics’ first nomination for an award since 2016. It last won in 2014 for an article in the “Best Instructional Content” category by Senior Editor Jeffrey Bendix. Winners of this year’s competition were announced April 26 at a lunch ceremony in New York City.
