The Police Association of South Australia has taken out a gold award at the 2021 Tabbie Awards, with a number of other Australian and New Zealand B2B and association publications also recognised for excellence.
The Tabbie judges said the piece was “an immersive article that brings the reader to the scene of the depicted event”.
“This writer is an excellent storyteller, sharing details with an authentic yet compassionate voice. The design stayed true to the storyline, not shying away from sharing somewhat graphic images of an injury (which may not be for the faint of heart). Grateful this person made a full recovery!”
This is the second year running that Brett Williams has received a Gold award for a feature article in the awards.
Other Australian and New Zealand publications to be recognised were:
- The Magazine Publishing Company’S (TMPC’s) Baking Business magazine as an honourable mention in the Best Single Issue category
- Key Media’s Human Resources Director as an honourable mention in the Best B2B Website category
- Master Plumbers’ NZ Plumber magazine as an honourable mention in the Best Single Issue, Best Feature Article, and Best COVID-19 coverage categories
- IDG’s CIO NZ magazine as an honourable mention in the Best Focus/Profile Article category.
The Tabbie Awards are organised by The Association of Business Publications International (TABPI). The organisation aims to bring together editors working for English-language print and online publications worldwide, encouraging a common dedication to editorial ethics and excellence.
The 2021 Tabbie Awards featured nominations from across the globe, with submissions from Australia, the USA, Canada, the UK and New Zealand. This year’s competition grew markedly, with more submissions than any year since 2017.
TABPI President Paul J. Heney said that this year’s entries highlighted how important B2B journalism is to the multitude of industries it serves.
“Judges raved about how publishers pushed forward, even in the midst of a global pandemic. The work submitted for the Tabbies each year continues to show the astonishing print and online journalism that continues to happen in this space,” Heney said.
“Around the world, editors and designers are doing quality work, meaningful to the industries they serve — and we’re proud to help spotlight it.”
