ASBPE’s 2023 Azbee Awards of Excellence competition is now open for submissions. These highly competitive editorial and design awards celebrate the highest quality reporting, editing and design in business-to-business, trade, association and professional publications across all platforms, including magazines, newspapers, e-newsletters, websites and social media.
New for 2023, ASBPE has renewed its deadline and fee structure. In previous years, ASBPE offered a short deadline extension for entrants. ASBPE will no longer offer extensions; instead, the association is adding a late-entry period. The late-entry period will be one full week, allowing entrants additional time to enter most categories for an additional fee of $10 per entry. Screened categories—Magazine of the Year, Print Feature Article and Web Feature Article—will not be eligible for the late-entry period.
Enter before the early bird deadline on Thursday, Dec. 15 at 5 p.m. ET to save $30 per entry. The regular deadline is Tuesday, Jan. 10, 2023, at 4 p.m. ET. Entrants can submit entries for most categories by the late-entry deadline of Tuesday, Jan. 17, 2023, at 3 p.m. ET for a $10 per entry fee.
Check out in-depth descriptions of all the Azbee Award categories along with everything you need to know in order to submit your entries via ASBPE’s online platform. Ensure your free ASBPE membership is up to date in order to submit your entries with the member discount.
ASBPE also wants to encourage all B2B professionals to take part in judging the Azbee Awards. Each submission goes through a rigorous, multistep judging process that requires multiple reviewers. The time commitment is low, and the payoff is large for judges. Judging does not preclude individuals or their publications from entering awards. Learn more about judging the Azbees and sign up by Dec. 15.
