ASBPE congratulates all the finalists of the Azbee Awards of Excellence competition! This year more than 1,150 entries were received and more than 90 experienced B2B editors and designers assisted with judging the more than 75 categories of entries.

The Azbees honor the best in business-to-business media, recognizing outstanding work by B2B, trade, association and professional publications. One of the most competitive award programs for trade media, the Azbees highlight editorial, online and design excellence within magazines, newsletters and digital media.

For the first time, ASBPE has compiled this year’s finalists into an online photo gallery showcasing the finalists, including each entry’s submission essays and copies of each entry.
