Among some of the toughest competition in the b2b publishing world, Banking Exchange won six awards for editorial and design excellence, just 18 months from its launch date.
The magazine and website was a finalist in six categories encompassing both digital and print articles and won awards in all six for a clean sweep.
The awards, known as “Azbees,” are given out by the American Society of Business Publication Editors, and are among the most prestigious and coveted awards in the business media world. All the big b2b publishing companies compete.
Banking Exchange was the only banking publication to win awards in this year’s competition.
Editor & Publisher Bill Streeter, who attended the Northeast Regional Awards dinner along with Steve Cocheo, Executive Editor and Digital Content Manager, said:
“To be singled out by your peers for excellence is very satisfying. It reinforces what our goal has been from the beginning, to offer bankers high-quality, unbiased, and useful articles—in print and online—to help them compete in an increasingly tough marketplace. That's what our experienced staff and contributors, and our knowledgeable bloggers strive for in every post and every article.”
The six awards were for the Northeast Region of ASBPE. Three of the six were also finalists for the National Awards, to be announced July 21.
