SABEW’s Best in Business contest opens Dec. 1
The Society of American Business Editors and Writers will open its 2016 Best in Business awards contest on Dec. 1.
As in past years, the 2016 BIBs have been updated to reflect the rapidly evolving media landscape. Among this year’s new features:
- All BIBs will be platform agnostic.
- Entrants will compete based on the size of their newsroom staff, rather than on the size of their circulation, ratings or digital footprint.
- For the first time, BIBs will recognize general excellence in industry- or topic-specific publications.
- Additional beats being recognized this year include airlines and travel, autos and transportation, media and entertainment, economics, retail, markets, banking and finance, management and careers.
The 2016 BIBs are open to work published between Jan. 1, 2016, and Dec. 31, 2016. The final deadline for all entries is Jan. 31, 2017 at midnight. Additional information and rules will be available Nov. 30 on SABEW.org. Winners and honorable mentions will be selected by panels of reporters, editors, and academics.
The BIBs are the only comprehensive set of awards honoring excellence in business journalism. Winners will be honored on the final night of SABEW’s annual conference and awards banquet, Saturday, April 29, in Seattle.
