SABEW’s Best in Business opens Dec. 1
The Society of American Business Editors and Writers’ 17th annual Best in Business Awards Competition will open Dec. 1, more than a month earlier than it did last year.
The earlier entry period gives SABEW members — the only journalists eligible for the contest — time to get their entries out of the way before the traditional contest “season” begins in January. As a bonus, early birds get a discounted rate.
The final deadline for submissions to this year’s Best in Business with 8 p.m. Eastern time Tuesday, Jan. 24, 2012, earlier than usual.
SABEW set this date to ensure the contest is finished in time for awards ceremonies at next year’s 49th annual spring conference in Indianapolis, March 15-17. Unlike in past years, there will be no extensions.
SABEW memberships must be paid and current at the time entries are filed. If you’d like to inquire about your membership status, write to SABEW membership coordinator Mark Scarp, email@example.com.
The competition continues to recognize recent developments in the coverage of business news while retaining the core elements of the largest creative competition in business journalism.
