National Awards

Congrats to the National Azbee Awards of Excellence winners, who were honored at the 2013 ASBPE National Conference and Awards banquet.

View our Flickr Photo Stream of the conference, including sessions, banquets and honored attendees!

ASBPE presented its 2013 Lifetime Achievement Award to Julia Homer, former founding editor of CFO magazine, who spoke at the event. In addition, the Stephen Barr Award for feature writing was presented to Inc. Magazine senior writer Burt Helm. Helm’s winning story in the November 2012 Inc., “After the Squeeze,” examined the causes and effects of a bank-lending drought that has disproportionately hit the small-business people who are the publication’s main audience.

Congratulations to our 2013 ASBPE Young Leader Scholarship winners, who will all receive a one-year membership to ASBPE, free registration to the conference and awards banquet, and a two-night hotel stay in Chicago. This year’s winners are:

  • Ashley Barforoush of Advanstar Communications,
  • Kathie Zipp of Solar Power World Online and
  • Kristin Bent of CRN.

Ethics Advisory: Proactive marketing effort is editor’s best response when publisher seeks to increase ad/editorial swaps
