Tampa, FL (PRWEB) August 24, 2011

BizEd, AACSB International’s magazine serving business schools, corporate universities, and experts in business education, has received eight publishing awards—three from Trade, Association, and Business Publications International (TABPI), two from the Association Media & Publishing, and three from the Florida Magazine Association (FMA).

Trade, Association, and Business Publications International (TABPI) 2011 Tabbie Awards
The Tabbie Awards recognize excellence in editorial content and design in trade, association, and business publications from around the world. This year’s competition featured nearly 400 entries, with nominations coming from the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, India, New Zealand, and South Africa.

In the “Best Single Issue” category—the competition's most comprehensive—BizEd won the Gold award for the November/December 2010 issue. In their comments highlighting this important accomplishment, the judges of the Tabbie Awards said, “From the front cover to the last page, BizEd addresses one of the most pressing issues facing higher education today—online learning. The captivating cover story tells the story of Google and its efforts to develop online learning tools, while the rest of the issue deals with other online learning challenges (including the role of social media). BizEd breaks the mold for trade magazines, and for a small circulation publication, BizEd knew exactly the right content and tone for its market.”

“A Tabbie Award for ‘Single Best Issue’ is the Super Bowl for the world’s association magazines, and BizEd is the winner,” said John Fernandes, president and chief executive officer of AACSB International. “Management educators worldwide, and AACSB business schools in particular, raise a toast—your magazine is the best of 2011!”

Sharon Shinn, co-editor of BizEd, also was recognized with an honorable mention in the “Feature Article” category for “The Holistic Leader,” which appeared in the May/June 2010 issue, and Tricia Bisoux, co-editor of BizEd, received an honorable mention in the “Focus/Profile” category for “Taking Care", which appeared in the July/August 2010 issue.

Tricia Bisoux won a Silver Award for the editorial “Don’t Tweet for Me North Korea,” which appeared in the November/December 2010 issue. Also, Sharon Shinn won a Silver Award for the May/June 2010 feature “The Holistic Leader.”

Florida Magazine Association (FMA) 2011 Charlie Awards
Each year, the FMA presents bronze, silver, and ‘Charlie’ awards in 75 categories in areas of general excellence, editorial excellence, design excellence, and printing excellence, and represents the pinnacle of achievement in Florida magazine publishing.

In the area of “Writing Excellence”, BizEd received one Charlie Award, the competition’s top honor or gold standard, and two silver awards. For best Editorial/Commentary/Opinion, Sharon Shinn won top honors for “When the Light Bulb Goes On”, which appeared in the September/October 2010 issue.
