The Society of American Business Editors and Writers‘ 18th annual Best in Business competition opens for entries on Monday, Dec. 3, with two new categories, Small Business and Technology.

Also new this year: Innovation, a category 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.

More details will follow soon when full contest rules are released.

Only SABEW members in good standing can enter. Members submitted a record 1,030 entries last year, up from 796 entries in 2009.   Winners will be recognized at the spring Washington D.C. conference April 4-6, which will mark SABEW’s 50th birthday.

For the second year in a row, the contest will open for early birds in December, at reduced prices. “Starting early really helps members get a jump on the contest crunch,” said contest co-chair Lisa Gibbs, a writer for Money Magazine.
