ASBPE congratulates all the finalists of the Azbee Awards of Excellence competition! This year more than 1,000 entries were received and more than 100 experienced B2B editors and designers judged the 78 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.

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.
