The Case for Cities

Cities are engines of our local and national economies and centers of creativity, culture, and entertainment. But they are under more pressure than ever. Nearly two years ago, IMG’s Soapbox Cincinnati launched a series, The Case for Cities, that looks at how the Ohio city and others can grow by coming places of choice and justice models.

The series recently received recognition from the Greater Cincinnati Society of Professional Journalists. Writers David Holthaus and Natalie Grilli received the 2023 Camilla Warrick Award. Holthaus was also awarded Best of Show – Best Overall Freelance Reporter for his work with Soapbox and Cincinnati Magazine. Holthaus won both of these awards in 2022 for his stories affiliated with “The Case for Cities” and other freelance work.
