CAMP HILL, Pa., Nov. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- InsuranceNewsNet Magazine, the No.1 news source for the life insurance and annuities industry, won three min Editorial & Design Awards, including the most prestigious Breaking News Award for Business-to-Business publications. This put InsuranceNewsNet side-by-side with Time Magazine, which was the winner in the consumer category for its historic coverage of The End of Bin Laden.
Min singled out InsuranceNewsNet’s achievement, saying, “InsuranceNewsNet's ‘finest hour’ was its August 2010 ‘story behind the story’ on how Congress passed legislation barring the Securities and Exchange Commission from indexed annuity regulation. As with Time (Magazine), InsuranceNewsNet's reporting continues to reverberate.”
InsuranceNewsNet Publisher Paul Feldman said receiving the awards was an honor and winning the Breaking News was particularly gratifying.
“This award validates all the hard work our staff puts into reporting and creating outstanding editorial news coverage every month,” Feldman said. “This story also involved a lot of input from individuals deeply involved in the issue and we couldn’t have done it without them. Being awarded alongside Time Magazine shows that we are successfully bringing world-class journalism to our readers.”
The three awards are:
