Changes made to SABEW Best in Business contest
Last year’s conversion to an electronic entry process for SABEW’s Best in Business context was such a hit that, for the upcoming contest in 2007, they’re going almost completely digital.
Here’s what’s changing:
If you’re entering the section contest, you’ll enter as you did last year: register your entry online, and then mail in four copies of each of the sections you’re entering. But if you’re entering any of the news contest categories — enterprise, breaking news, projects or columns — you’ll register the entry online, attach a pdf (or include several of them in a zip file, which we’ll tell you how to create), and that’s it – you’re finished. Nothing to copy or mail.
More details, and explicit directions, will be included in the Best in Business instructions to be posted on the SABEW web site soon.
Also new this year is one entry deadline: Feb. 1. Last year, SABEW created some confusion by having two entry dates — one to register and one to postmark your entries.
The first two mandatory dates for the 2006 section contest are Thursday, Feb. 16, and Sunday, Aug. 20. SABEW will announce the third mandatory date, and give you more information on the three dates you can choose, by the end of the year.
The mandatory date for the column contest is Wednesday, Feb. 8. Columnists who did not publish that date should submit the first column published AFTER Feb. 8.
