The Society of American Business Editors and Writers‘ 18th annual Best in Business competition will include coverage of Small Business for the first time.

The competition opens for entries on Monday, Dec. 3.

Also new this year: Technology; and Innovation, a division that will recognize creative and bold initiatives across all facets of business journalism, from exciting new apps to interesting storytelling experiments. This replaces Creative Use of Multiple Platforms. Blogs are merging with Opinion/Column to become Commentary.

The full contest rules will be released Friday, Nov. 9.

Reporting on small business and entrepreneurship from any source is at the core of the new Small Business division.

The division is format- and platform- agnostic. Entries will be judged against each other. Judges will weigh the missions and sizes of entrants.

An entry will consist of up to five pieces of work, including side elements such as videos and graphics. A one-page letter of explanation may be included.
