Late deadline for the 2020 Tabbie Awards extended to May 1st

VANCOUVER (April 3, 2020) – Trade, Association and Business Publications International (TABPI) is sponsoring the 2020 Tabbie Award, the worldwide B2B journalism competition. Given the current restrictions, with many organizations on hold or working remotely, TABPI would like to extend the already late deadline for this year’s Tabbies.

This means if you haven’t gotten your entries in for this year’s Tabbie Awards, there’s still time! The new extended deadline is May 1st, 2020.

This renowned competition, now in its 17th year, averages 500 submissions annually — and features nominations that come from across the world, including: Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Ireland, Malta, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Singapore, South Africa, United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

“We’ve already received entries from a wide variety of industries,” said TABPI president, Paul Heney. “But we’ve also heard from many publications — where the work at home restrictions are impacting their ability to do business efficiently — asking for an extension. Given these extraordinary times, we wanted to offer these publications more time to take part in 2020. Entering the Tabbie Awards is an excellent way to honor the hard work of your editorial, design, and social media teams.”

The Tabbies honor the best in international B2B publications — including editorial, design, digital, and social media.
