TORONTO, Feb. 2, 2016 /CNW/ - SABEW Canada's 2nd annual Best in Business contest is accepting submissions. This is the only awards program in the country geared specifically towards business journalists. There are 12 categories, including long and short-form features, multimedia, investigative and beat reporting. There are also two new categories this year – local business news and breaking news.
Best in Business is open to any business publication or writer in Canada, regardless of medium. Entrants do need to be SABEW Canada members, but otherwise anyone can participate. Business journalists from across North America will be chosen to judge each category. Three nominees per category will be chosen and winners will be announced April 20 at an event in Toronto.
SABEW Canada is affiliated with the Society of American Business Editors and Writers (SABEW), a 50-year old organization for business journalists. The organization has more than 3,000 members from across the publishing world. The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Globe and Mail, National Post, Bloomberg, Reuters and more all have members in the group.
In September 2014, SABEW Canada officially launched, hosting its first event with John McCorry, Bloomberg's executive editor of the Americas. It's since held events with Dean Murphy, the New York Times' business editor, Kevin Delaney, the editor-in-chief of Quartz, Grant Robertson, an investigative journalist at the Globe and Mail, among others. It also hosts networking events and educational seminars. It brought SABEW's Best in Business contest to Canada last year.
The submission deadline is February 16. To become a member and to get more details about the contest, including costs and categories, visit sabew.org/canada.
