Best in Biz Awards, the only business awards program judged solely by members of the press and industry analysts, announced today the first set of judges in its sixth annual North American awards program. The judges announced today are returning from previous years’ Best in Biz Awards judging panels.

Best in Biz Awards’ uniqueness stems, in part, from the composition of its judging panels. Only writers, journalists, and contributors to business, consumer, financial, trade and technology publications, as well as broadcast outlets and analyst firms, are invited to serve as judges each year.
