2015 Tabbie design & editorial awards now open
CLEVELAND -- The 2015 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, now well into its second decade, the awards program is seeing a resurgence.
"I think that both editors and designers are seeing the value in being recognized for their journalistic achievements and hard work," Heney said. "Being honored in a competition like the Tabbies is a great marketing tool for publications to show that they're keeping their readers first. Advertisers recognize these marks of excellence, and they're more apt to want to be associated with quality publishing brands."
Categories in the Tabbies' editorial division include: Best Single Issue, Department, Editor's Column, Feature Article, Focus/Profile Article, How-To Article, Regular Column, Special Section, and Technical Article. Categories in the design division include: Feature Design, Front Cover, Digital Imagery; Front Cover, Illustration; Front Cover, Photograph; Front Cover, Special Issue; and Opening Page or Spread. The online division recognizes the most interactive, informative b2b websites, e-newsletters and the best use of social media.
The deadline for entries to be postmarked is March 12, 2015. A late fee applies after that date. An electronic version of the Call for Entries is now available by clicking here ... or just the entry here is here.
