ArkansasBusiness.com, ArkansasSports360.com Were EPpy Finalists

I’m going to take a few moments here to brag just a bit, and note that ArkansasBusiness.com and ArkansasSports360.com were finalists in the national EPpy awards, which honors online content. The awards, sponsored by the Knight Foundation, were presented at luncheon yesterday during the Editor & Publisher/Mediaweek Interactive Media Conference and Trade Show at the Rio in Las Vegas.

ArkansasBusiness.com, which we launched in December 2000, was a finalist in the category of “best business Web site with fewer than one million unique monthly visits.” Other finalists were the Euromoney Institutional Investor Online Network and Kiplinger.com, which won the category.

ArkansasSports360.com, which is coming up on its one-year anniversary this summer, was a finalist among sports sites with fewer than one million unique monthly visits. Other finalists were the CommunitySportsDesk at kenoshanews.com, Varsity845.com from the Hudson Valley Media Group and GoVolsXtra, which won the category.

You can read Editor & Publisher’s story on other award winners yesterday, which include The New York Times and USA Today, here.

While we didn’t come away with any hardware, it was indeed an honor just to be nominated.
