At Fortune, we write for our readers, not for journalism prize committees. Nevertheless, we welcome their recognition, and were delighted yesterday when the New York Press Club announced that no fewer than six of its annual prizes had gone to Fortune. I am resurfacing the prize winners here in the hope you’ll go back and read some of the great business journalism you might have missed last year.


How Uncle Sam Nationalized Two Fortune 50 Companies by Roger Parloff


The War on Big Food by Beth Kowitt


Smart guns: They’re ready. Are we? by Roger Parloff


Disney CEO Bob Iger’s empire of tech by Michal Lev-Ram


In addition, our photo spread on Teams of the Fortune 500 won in the photography category, and Geoff Colvin won for commentary.


And while we’re on it, Peter Elkind’s opus on the Sony Hack of the Century also won several journalism awards this year, while Erika Fry’s The crazy, bitter battle over Benihana garnered a couple as well.


News below.
