According to TABPI President Paul J. Heney, this year’s competition featured some shake-ups.
“We saw a great deal of changes this year in the patterns of who was entering what,” he said. “We saw more publications entering in certain categories, such as Best Single Issue. The judging was particularly tough there, and there were areas where multiple publications were very close in scoring. As a result, there are some fresh faces in our listings this year, which was very inspiring to see.”
The 2017 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.
