ASBPE Announces Web Site Publication of the Year Finalists

The Top 10 finalists for ASBPE's Web Site Publication of the Year Award have been announced.

The Web Site Publication of the Year is a new designation in this year's competition. Up till now, ASBPE has named Gold, Silver, and Bronze winners in a national "Overall Web Site" category, but the society wanted to raise the profile of the award and recognize in a way comparable to the Magazine of the Year Awards.

Although the Web Site Publication of the Year Award (like the Magazine of the Year Awards) is a national award only (to be announced during the National Editorial Conference in New York), I figure it's always of interest to see which sites from our region are among the finalists.

This year, finalists based in the competition's Northeast Region are:, the site for Boston-based CFO magazine, the site for New York City-based Engineering News-Record, the site for eWeek magazine in Woburn, Mass., based in New York City

See the complete list of Web Site Publication of the Year finalists (and Magazine of the Year finalists) nationwide.
