PPAI Magazine May 2023

PPAI Media Honored By B2B Editors Association THE AMERICAN SOCIETY OF BUSINESS PUBLICATION EDITORS, a trade group fostering excellence in B2B journalism, has unveiled the finalists for its annual Azbee awards, with PPAI Media winning awards in four categories for its work in 2022. “Award recognition, including the Azbees, is nothing new for PPAI Media,” says Josh Ellis, publisher and editor-in-chief of PPAI Media. “When Tina Berres Filipski left the Association after The PPAI Expo 2022 and I moved into her office, I marveled at all the trophies and plaques she left behind from her 26-year run heading our publications. It was a reminder that our members are accustomed to excellent, trustworthy coverage of the trends and events shaping their livelihoods.” PPAI Media earned finalist nods for both national and regional prizes. Three individual articles from PPAI Magazine (titled PPB Magazine before its January redesign and rebranding) are under consideration by ASBPE judges for print honors, as is the PPAI Newslink newsletter for general excellence. “I’m proud of the overall team effort that led to these finalist honors. The work of our entire staff is represented,” Ellis says. “I’m also proud that Tina herself is sharing in the honor as the subject of a Q&A article that is up for an award. Given how much we rely on industry sources to do our work, we also owe a great deal of credit to our members.” The award include: PPAI: 111248 | ASI: 35375 | SAGE: 50327 | UPIC: ACCENTS | DC: 101273 Made & Printed in the USA Quick Turn Arounds Low Minimums www.americanaccents.com | 888.287.7883 Scan for pricing! 50 piece minimums!
