10th Tabbie Awards wrapping up; late deadline is March 25
The 2013 Tabbies Call for Entries is now available, allowing all b2b editors, publishers and art directors the opportunity to have their best work judged by their peers. The Tabbies, the editorial and design awards program run by Trade, Association and Business Publications International (TABPI), is again partnering with the U.S.'s American Society of Business Publication Editors (ASBPE), New Zealand's Magazine Publishers Association (MPA), South Africa’s SAFREA, Australia's Society of Editors NSW and the Magazine Publishers Association of South Africa (MPASA).
Paul J. Heney, TABPI President, said that the b2b community is excited for this, the tenth iteration of the awards.
“We've seen so much growth in the Tabbies over the past decade," Heney said. "It has been quite an experience to see the impactful journalism that is being done across the world. Queries for the tenth Tabbies began coming in four or five months ago, and we're certainly expecting an active year for the awards."
The 2013 Tabbies are also supported by companies that have an interest in working with b2b editors and publishers -- as well as supporting editorial and design excellence. Your support of them is most appreciated. The Gold Sponsor for the 2013 Tabbies is Proximity Marketing. The Silver Sponsor for the 2013 Tabbies is Business Strategies Group Asia.
