Late deadline for 2017 Tabbies is March 23rd

CLEVELAND -- The deadline for the 2017 Tabbies b2b awards program is passed, but it's not too late to enter. The late deadline (with a late submission entry fee of $125) has been set as March 23.

This online + print competition allows all b2b editors, publishers and art directors the opportunity to have their best work judged by their international 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, and Australia's Society of Editors NSW.

Paul J. Heney, TABPI President, explained that the awards program's move to an electronic submission process last year was a resounding success.

"We were already excited about debuting the new entry process in 2016," Heney said. "But the feedback from the entrants was so overwhelmingly positive. We heard time and time again how easy it was to use, and what a timesaver it was for the publication staff members."

Heney stressed that being honored in a worldwide competition like the Tabbies is a great marketing tool for publications to show that they're focused on quality journalism and keeping their readers informed.

"Advertisers recognize these marks of excellence, and many of them want to be associated with reputable publishing brands," he explained.

The Tabbies international b2b magazine competition encompasses 18 categories, and is open to English-language business-to-business publications around the world that are published at least three times per year, as well as b2b online publications. Unlike some more restrictive programs, publications are not required to maintain membership in any particular organization in order to be considered for the Tabbies -- and entry fees remain among the lowest of comparable programs.

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 2017 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 Silver Sponsor for the 2017 Tabbies is Business Strategies Group Asia (www.bsgasia.com).

Judges for the competition are culled from suggestions of regional editorial groups across the globe. Winners will be announced on or about July 15th, 2017.

According to TABPI President Paul J. Heney, this year's competition had a few surprises.

"We saw a great deal of diversity this year as compared to some past competitions, as far as what countries the submissions were coming from," he said. "And we saw a bigger mix of publications that won an award. We still have a lot of great titles that win year after year, but the competition seems to be stepping up, too. It's inspiring to see the level of excellence in b2b editorial and design that's being put out today. I think it's as high as we've ever seen it."

Presented by Trade, Association and Business Publications International (TABPI), this 13th-year editorial and design competition was open to English-language b2b publications worldwide, published at least three times per year.

The 2016 Tabbies have been 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 Silver Sponsor for the this year is Business Strategies Group Asia.
