It is our pleasure to report that we’ve won a total of six 2013 TABBIE Awards for writing and design excellence. Presented by Trade, Association and Business Publications International (TABPI), the TABBIES are open to B2B publications in more than 40 countries.
This year, approximately 500 magazines from around the globe entered into the various categories, and Pizza Today was among the most decorated. In fact, we were one of only 5 magazines out of the 500 entrants to win 5 or more awards. That places us in the top 1 percent of magazines worldwide! It also soars above our personal best of 4 awards in 2012. And, yes, we brought home yet another GOLD performance in 2013. This year it was for Best Use of Social Media.
Here’s a look at the awesomeness bestowed upon Pizza Today this time around:
- Best Use of Social Media Category, Gold
- Best Front Cover, Special Issue, Bronze (for our October 2012 cover)
- Best Regular Column — Man on the Street, Bronze
- Best Single Issue — 10th out of 500 (for our October 2012 issue)
- Best Opening Page or Spread — Honorable Mention (December 2012)
- Best Feature Design — Honorable Mention (April 2012)
What’s more, Pizza Today is yet again the only foodservice trade publication to win multiple awards.
In commenting on our use of Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Tumblr, Instagram, Vine, iPad apps and Google Play, the astute judges said that we “hit on all the right social media keys.”
Thank you, judges. We’re blushing.

2012 August: Man on the Street
Imagine a world in which doctors disagree on terminology for common procedures. Or what if plumbers used the same name for different sized pipes and connectors? Houses would flood, limbs would be accidentally amputated — there would be absolute mayhem. The pizza world isn’t in imminent danger, but I’ve noticed an increase in misused terminology on menu boards lately.Read More
2012 December: Man on the Street
Lower Manhattan is a ghost town. Century-old trees are uprooted, the world’s most incredible public transportation system has ground to a halt and power is out — not just in some buildings, but everywhere south of 28th Street. As I write this, New York is just days removed from the landfall of Hurricane Sandy.
