Tabbie Awards
Enters Its Third Decade

CLEVELAND (January 1, 2024) – The 2024 Tabbie Awards competition is open and accepting submissions from print and online publications worldwide. Celebrating its 21st year, the global b2b journalism competition gives editors, art directors, and publishers the opportunity to have their best work judged by peers all over the globe. Publications need not be international in scope to qualify.

“Ever since the Tabbies’ debut in 2004, we’ve seen incredible work from b2b journalists around the world,” TABPI President Paul J. Heney said. “The Tabbies competition celebrates the best global online and print work in editorial and design among business, trade, and association publications. There’s such a need in the industry for celebrating excellence, and we’re thrilled to start our third decade of this work.”

This year’s competition features 14 categories in editorial and design. The Tabbies competition is open to English-language b2b publications, as well as online b2b publications. Unlike some more restrictive programs, publications are not required to maintain membership in an organization to participate in the Tabbies — and entry fees remain among the lowest of comparable programs.

Entrants can save $40 by taking advantage of the early-bird fee for submissions ($115 per entry) that are received by the deadline of Thursday, March 14th, 2023. The regular fee of $155 per entry applies after that date. Submissions can be made via this link:

Judges for the competition are culled from suggestions of regional editorial groups around the world. Winners will be announced on or about August 14th, 2023.



Trade, Association, and Business Publications International, or TABPI, is a global organization whose mission is “fostering b2b journalism, from local to global.” TABPI’s editorial and design awards program, the Tabbie Awards, is open to English-language b2b publications in 40 countries, and encompasses 14 editorial and design categories.
