Tech & Learning Nominated For Best Media Brand in the Jesse H. Neal Awards

NEW YORK, NY (February 22, 2016) — NewBay Media has announced that its Tech & Learning magazine, the leading edtech publication and resource for over 36 years, was named as a finalist for Best Media Brand in the Jesse H. Neal Awards competition.  The Neal Awards, produced by the SIIA (Software & Information Industry Association), honor editorial excellence in business publications, and are considered one of specialized journalism’s most important accolades.

Tech & Learning was nominated for Best Media Brand because of its commitment to provide factual and evaluative information on trends, products, and strategies to educators who purchase technology products in their districts and schools. The publication delivers the highest quality content and essential resources to manage, train, and teach technology through a truly integrated platform.

“We’re obviously thrilled to be selected as a finalist for the Neal Awards, especially in this category.” states Kevin Hogan, Editorial Director of Tech & Learning. “Tech& Learning has been publishing since 1980, which is a long time for any magazine, let alone one focused on technology. The fact that the brand continues to thrive is a testament to our readers, who are also the best contributors. This recognition also shows that we practice what we preach — delivering information and insights using whatever platform works best whether that means print, digital, or live in-person events.”

Entries for the Neal Awards are scored in three areas: journalistic enterprise, extent of service to the field, and editorial craftsmanship.  Winners will be announced in April.
