2015 Tabbie design & editorial awards now open

Tabbie awards 2014CLEVELAND -- 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."

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 quarterly, as well as b2b online-only 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.

Categories in the Tabbies' editorial division are:

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 are:
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 2015 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 2015 Tabbies is Proximity Marketing. The Silver Sponsor for the 2015 Tabbies is Business Strategies Group Asia.

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 the entry form alone is here.

Judges for the competition are culled from suggestions of regional editorial groups across the globe. Winners will be announced on or about July 15th, 2015.
