The 2020 Azbee Awards launches Nov. 1 and features many new and updated categories

The annual contest launches November 1. Winners represent the finest print, online, and design content in business-to-business publications.

The American Society of Business Publication Editors’ (ASBPE’s) 42nd annual Azbee Awards of Excellence opens for entries on Nov. 1, 2019. The Azbee Awards are highly competitive and celebrate the highest quality reporting, editing and design in business-to-business, trade, association and professional publications. The awards honor print publications, e-newsletters, B2B websites, and digital media.

For this year, we’ve updated several categories and introduced a few new ones, including Opening Page/Spread – Photo Illustration and Online Breaking News Coverage. Art directors and page designers definitely will be excited about this new design category. And editors and writers are encouraged to share with us their best breaking news coverage this year. We know that a lot of blood, sweat, and tears goes into producing these pieces.

Early-bird entries (between Nov. 1 and Dec. 10) receive a discounted entry fee, so start preparing your entries now! The final deadline to enter the 2020 Azbee Awards is Jan. 6, 2020.
