The Society for Advancing Business Editing and Writing’s Best in Business Book contest will open for submissions on Monday, July 11, and close on Monday, Aug. 15.
New to the competition this year, there will be two separate categories for entry: (1) Business Reporting and (2) Investing and Personal Finance. Eligible entries are books published from Aug. 1, 2021, through July 31, 2022.
• Books in the “Business Reporting” category must be nonfiction works about companies, business topics, business leaders, markets, economics, or labor. This category focuses on works of long-form narrative, history, biography, or analysis. Judges are looking for the quality of the writing and reporting, the craft and power of the storytelling, and the book’s impact and importance within its particular field.
• Books in the “Investing and Personal Finance” category must be nonfiction works offering insight, analysis, or explanation of ideas, strategies, or trends in personal finance or professional investing. These are typically works of service journalism that are useful either to individual investors and families striving to manage their finances or to professional investors, money managers and investment firms.
