We’ve made a few changes to reflect industry transitions. In the past, we’ve had Print, Online, Design, and Overall Excellence award divisions. But not all content you publish are cleanly “print” or “online” anymore.

A New Awards Division, “All Content”

This year, we’re introducing a new combined awards division called All Content. We know journalism no longer exists in silos. ASBPE has created this new Azbee Awards division to reflect your reporting work in print, online, and other digital formats. We don’t just write articles for print anymore; we create stories that live in multiple formats – sometimes for different audiences. The following awards categories are in this new division:

  • Company Profile
  • Data Journalism
  • Enterprise News Story
  • Online Q&A
  • Original Research
  • Trade Show/Conference Coverage
  • Government Coverage
  • Humor

Be a Judge!

Applying to judge this year’s entries is a great way for qualified authors, editors, graphic artists and designers to see the best of the best in B2B journalism and get new ideas. And no, you cannot judge categories you or your publication enter! Judging sign-up deadline is Friday, December 7.

Annual Meeting: Save the Date:

May 9 - 10: The 2019 ASBPE National Conference and Azbee Awards banquet will be held at the Poynter Institute in St. Petersburg, Florida. Enjoy the beautiful spring weather in St. Pete and bring the whole family to enjoy a weekend by the shore!
