Economy Lab, which examines the forces at play in today’s global economy, has won a prestigious EPpy award as Best Business Blog on a media website with more than a million unique monthly visitors.

The award was one of two EPpy awards that The Globe clinched when winners were announced Wednesday, more than any other Canadian news website.

The Globe’s other EPpy award went to GlobeDrive.com for Best Automotive Website with more than a million unique monthly visitors.

The Edmonton Journal is the only other Canadian news outlet to get an EPpy this year, being named for Best Use of Photography on a website with 250,000 to a million unique monthly visitors.
