Tabbie Awards program is celebrating 15th year

CLEVELAND—The 2018 Tabbies b2b awards program is accepting submissions from both print and online publications. This 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, Australia’s Society of Editors NSW and the Magazine Publishers Association of South Africa (MPASA).

Paul J. Heney, TABPI President, said that the b2b community is excited for this, the 15th iteration of the awards.

“We’ve seen so much growth in the Tabbies over the past decade and a half,” Heney said. “It has been quite an experience to see the impactful b2b journalism that is being done across the world. Queries for the this year’s Tabbies competition began coming in months ago, so we are certainly expecting an active year for the awards.”

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 late deadline for entries is Friday, March 30, 2018. To see if submissions are being accepted after that date, please check with our office. Judges for the competition are culled from suggestions of regional editorial groups across the globe. Winners will be announced on or about July 15th, 2018.

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.
