Secrets of Winning Editorial Awards

With the Azbee Awards of Excellence coming up, I thought people would probably be interested in knowing about two resources that can help their chances of bringing home a plaque, or even a Magazine- or Web-Site-of-the-Year trophy. Fostering an award-winning culture, or even paying special attention to the entry statement, can have an impact on whether your submissions are successful or not. Most of these tips apply to any awards competition, not just the Azbees.
  • First, there's the new ASBPE Tip Sheet, "Secrets to Winning Azbee Awards."

    Tip Sheets, compilations of practical advice from national and chapter ASBPE meetings and other sources, are a new benefit for ASBPE members. But this first Tip Sheet is available to everyone.

  • ASBPE members can get a slide presentation from our recent webinar, "Editorial Winners Tell All."

    This webinar featured advice from multi-award-winners Don Tennant (VP/editorial director of Computerworld and InfoWorld) and Boyce Thompson (editorial director of Hanley Wood's Builder, Multifamily, and Technology magazine groups). Thompson's detailed slides from the webinar are available to members.
Update, 1/11/08: The deadline for submitting Azbee entries has been changed to Feb. 15. Also, we'll be offering a free webinar on the new online entry process on Jan. 18 at 1:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. To register, email

Update, 2/15/08: Due to online entry-submission problems caused by high server traffic today, ASBPE is moving the deadline one week later, to Feb. 22. Over the weekend we'll be taking steps to help prevent further problems.
