SABEW contest sets entry record
The Society of American Business Editors and Writers annual Best in Business contest received 897 entries for its 2010 contest, a new record.
Judging will begin shortly, and the winners will be announced in March. The winners will receive their awards at the SABEW conference in Dallas on April 7 to April 9.
“We took a bit of a risk in reshaping the Best in Business contest this year,” said Beth Hunt, manager of editorial operations for American City Business Journals and chair of the Best in Business committee. “Change can be hard, but we discovered, in no uncertain terms, that our members were ready for a new contest that better fits the times we’re living in.”
The contest this year included, for the first time, a division for international publications and correspondents, a division for radio/broadcast TV/cable media outlets and an expanded division for digital media outlets.
Two open categories to recognize the work of real estate and personal finance journalists and columnists across the country were also added.
