PHOENIX–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Society for Advancing Business Editing and Writing (SABEW), the leading association of business journalists, is accepting entries in its inaugural Best in Business Book Awards contest.

SABEW has selected an esteemed panel of business journalists and finance professionals who are passionate about the craft, and excited to celebrate those authors who have demonstrated it through their works of nonfiction. The judges will select a winner who will be awarded a $1,000 cash prize, and two finalists who will receive $500 each. The recognized authors will be announced in mid-November.
The contest is run by (SABEW), the largest association of business journalists maintaining a membership of more than 3,000 members reporting around the world. SABEW member newsrooms include Reuters, the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, the Associated Press, The Globe and Mail, CNBC, CNN Business and many more news organizations.
