Industry Dive publications named finalists for Website of the year, 16 Azbee Awards

2022 Azbee Awards of Excellence

The American Society of Business Publication Editors has nominated Retail Dive as the Website of the Year in the 2022 Azbee Awards of Excellence finalists released today. In all, Industry Dive received 16 finalist nominations for awards to be announced in the regional contest in April and national awards in May.

The Azbee Awards of Excellence program is one of the most distinguished awards competitions, recognizing business-to-business, trade, association and professional publications for their achievements in high-quality reporting, editing and design.

"Today’s ASBPE nominations represent some of our newsroom’s best work — and how we fulfill our promise to produce the best journalism for business leaders in the markets we serve,” said Industry Dive Editor-in-Chief Davide Savenije. “The growing number of nominations we received today reflect our newsroom's progression over the years — and the ambition, dedication, and depth of our journalists' reporting across our Dives."

In 2021, Industry Dive had 9 total National Finalists and 13 Regional Finalists. In this year’s content the total has jumped to 11 National Finalists and 15 Regional.

“Our ultimate goal is still to become the world's most respected source of business journalism, and our finalists show what some of that work can look like,” Savenije said.
