FORT COLLINS - InnovatioNews claimed five awards at the annual Society of Professional Journalists event held April 25 in Denver, including a first-place award for General Website Excellence.
InnovatioNews also received first-place awards for a multimedia story and blog/editorial, and second and third place awards for two other blog submissions.
The story and blogs were written by Steve Porter, InnovatioNews editor.
"We are thrilled to accept these five awards from the Colorado Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists," Porter said.
"It validates our journalistic credentials and the impact we're having as we go about reporting on all kinds of innovation happening all across Colorado."
The competition included media from Colorado, Utah, Wyoming and New Mexico.
Dennis Huspeni, president of SPJ's Colorado Chapter, said the 2014 Top of the Rockies regional competition had a record number of entries.
