Some trade journalists are eligible for the SABEW Best in Business contest. Take a look at the rules before Feb. 1. Trade reporters are also eligible for some categories in the IRE awards. (In the interest of full disclosure: I worked at both SABEW and IRE while at the University of Missouri-Columbia in the early 1980s.)
The deadline for the ASBPE's Awards of Excellence is Jan. 21.
You're already too late for the Neal Awards, but there's still time to get a seat at the March 16 luncheon.
