PHOENIX, Dec. 27, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Society of American Business Editors and Writers' Best in Business contest will open Jan. 4, 2011 with several new divisions and a new emphasis on non-traditional business news media.

The 16th annual competition has been redesigned to recognize recent developments in the coverage of business news while retaining the core elements of the largest creative competition in business journalism.

Among those new elements debuting this year:

  • A division for international publications and correspondents.
  • A division for radio/broadcast TV/cable media outlets.
  • An expanded division for digital media outlets.
  • Two open categories to recognize the work of real estate and personal finance journalists and columnists across the country.

"So much of our industry has changed in recent years," said competition chair Beth Hunt of American City Business Journals, who is also SABEW's national secretary. "The changes we've made to the contest reflect our new realities and present a real opportunity for news organizations to show how they're evolving to meet the needs of new kinds of readers, viewers and users."

The Best in Business entry period runs Jan. 4 through Jan. 31, 2011. Those who enter individual contests on or before Jan. 15, 2011 are rewarded with an early entry fee of $50. Entries received after that date will be $55. For general excellence categories, each entry is $115 if received before Jan. 15 and $125 after that.

Additional information can be found on sabew.org.

SABEW, with 3,200 members, is the world's largest membership organization of business and economic journalists. The organization is dedicated to excellence in business journalism. The BIB competition was developed in 1995 to honor the best of business journalism published, broadcast and posted in a calendar year.
