Big Law Business won the 2017 Website of the Year Award from the American Society of Business Publication Editors (ASBPE), the top honor given to a website in the business, trade, and specialty press by the professional association. The award was announced Thursday at the Poynter Institute in St. Petersburg, Florida, as part of the association’s 39th annual “Azbee Awards of Excellence” competition, recognizing outstanding writing and design in business-to-business magazines, newsletters, and digital media.
This year, nearly 1,200 Azbee entries were submitted in 76 categories. Judging for the Website of the Year category was based on 11 factors: the quality of writing, reporting, and editing; value and usefulness to readers; design; effectiveness in quick communication of information; navigation ease; interactivity and community; use of web technologies and graphic design to support and add usefulness to editorial; legibility and readability; clear distinctions between editorial and advertising; depth of information, and information architecture/editorial organization.
Big Law Business was launched just over two years ago, in March of 2015.
