Call for Judges: 2007 Azbees;
Accepting Applications This Fall

Now that the 2006 ASBPE Awards of Excellence have been given out, ASBPE is looking for people who are interested in judging the 29th annual Azbees. We need judges in all categories--editorial, design, web, and newsletter. You can choose which specific categories you're most interested in judging, whether it be Best Case History, Best Web Database, Best Feature Design, or any of about 40 others.

There are certain requirements we're looking for:
  • Must be currently working (includes freelancers) or retired from a B2B publication--minimum of five years' experience in B2B.

  • Must be willing to judge 10 to 300 entries, depending on the number of entries in your assigned category.

  • Must be willing to commit the time necessary to judge the categories appropriately.

  • Must be willing to judge your category during a one-month period between March and April.

  • Must be willing to judge entries objectively.

  • Most categories are judged by at least two people. Discussion with second judge is recommended, but must be available to review with second judge if asked.

  • Must be willing to write a short description (five sentences max) of the positive elements of your top five entries in each circulation category (over 80,000, under 80,000).

  • Every entry must be evaluated and given a score.

  • To avoid conflicts of interest, no person may judge a category in which his or her magazine has entered.
If you are interested in becoming a judge, fill out and e-mail this form (24K Word doc) to, or fax it to (630) 510-4501.

Update, 8/18/06: The Aug. 31 deadline I had previously included in this post was not a hard deadline, so I removed those references. ASBPE will accept judging applications during August and September, and possibly a little beyond that.
