Have you written a non-fiction business book that deserves recognition? The Society for Advancing Business Editing and Writing (SABEW), the leading association of business journalists, is accepting entries until August 15 in its Best in Business Book Awards.

The awards will recognize ground-breaking books that explore important modern business, investing and finance issues, companies, individuals or industries published between August 1, 2021 – July 31, 2022.

Contest Guidelines

New to the competition this year, there will be two separate categories for entry: (1) Business Reporting and (2) Investing and Personal Finance.

  • Books in the “Business Reporting” category, sponsored by Investopedia,  must be nonfiction works about companies, business topics, business leaders, markets, economics, or labor. This category focuses on works of long-form narrative, history, biography, or analysis.
  • Books in the “Investing and Personal Finance” category, sponsored by Yahoo! Finance,  must be nonfiction works offering insight, analysis, or explanation of ideas, strategies, or trends in personal finance or professional investing. These are typically works of service journalism that are useful either to individual investors and families striving to manage their finances or to professional investors, money managers and investment firms.

The winning authors from each category will be recognized by SABEW and awarded a $1,000 cash prize and two finalists from each category will receive $500. The winners and finalists will be announced in November.
