ASBPE congratulates the finalists of the 2021 Azbee Awards of Excellence competition! This year more than 800 entries were received, and more than 85 experienced B2B editors, freelancers and designers judged the 60 categories of entries.

One of the most competitive awards programs for trade media, the Azbees highlight editorial, online, and design excellence within magazines, newsletters, digital and social media.

ASBPE has compiled this year’s finalists into an online gallery showcasing the finalists, including each entry’s submission essay.
