Pizza Today has again been awarded a number of editorial and design awards from Trade, Association and Business Publications International (TABPI). The 13th annual TABBIE Awards recognize excellence in business-to-business publications from around the globe. This year netted more than 400 entries from around the globe. Pizza Today was only a handful of publications to win five-plus awards, including a its first-ever bronze award for Best Single Issue and its third gold award for Best Use of Social Media. Pizza Today took home the most awards of any publications submitted, with a total of seven titles.
According to TABPI President Paul J. Heney, this year’s competition had a few surprises.
“We saw a great deal of diversity this year as compared to some past competitions, as far as what countries the submissions were coming from,” he said. “And we saw a bigger mix of publications that won an award. We still have a lot of great titles that win year after year, but the competition seems to be stepping up, too. It’s inspiring to see the level of excellence in b2b editorial and design that’s being put out today. I think it’s as high as we’ve ever seen it.”
The magazine’s awards include:
BRONZE AWARD Best Single Issue: March 2015
GOLD AWARD Best Use of Social Media
GOLD AWARD Front Cover Special Issue: December 2015 Menu Guide// Josh Keown
BRONZE AWARD Opening Page or Spread: Ripe for the Pickin’// Josh Keown

“We are thrilled and honored to have done so well in this prestigious competition once again,” said Jeremy White, Pizza Today’s longtime editor in chief. “We take our work very seriously, and are flattered to be the most awarded trade magazine in the world this year. I’m exceptionally proud of our talented team of editors and artists.”
