The early-bird deadline for submissions is February 6, 2015. Entering by this date means the fee for submissions will be discounted in most categories. The final deadline for entries is February 13, 2015.

New this year, all written categories no longer require hard copies. You can submit only single-spread 8.5”x11” PDF versions when you complete the online application. However, please read the guidelines carefully to review which categories still require hard-copy submissions.

Harvey Southam Award for Career Achievement

Also now being accepted are nominations for the Harvey Southam Award for Career Achievement. The award is open to anyone working in the B2B magazine industry. The deadline for nominations is March 1, 2015.
