Time for the 2014 Tabbies!
Submissions for the 11th Tabbie Awards are now being accepted, 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 into its second decade, the awards program is seeing a big change.
“In talking to editors and publishers about the evolution of publications, we've made the decision to open up most of the editorial categories to both print and online entries. At one point, it made sense to segregate the two, but the b2b world is much different than it was when we started in the early 2000s," Heney said. "We still have three separate categories for online-specific topics, and we still focus on the print side for the design awards. I'm sure we'll continue to evolve with the industry, and I'm looking forward to seeing the entries we receive this year."
The Call for Entries can be downloaded here: 2014 Call for Entries.

The 2014 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 2014 Tabbies is Business Strategies Group Asia.
The deadline for entries to be postmarked is April 1st, 2014. A late fee applies after that date. For more details, the entry form, and to see a complete listing of all the winners, please click on the links on our Awards Page.
