Forbes Woman Africa Emerges Victorious Amongest 400 Global Publications At The 2017 Tabbie Awards

FORBES WOMAN AFRICA, Africa’s leading business, finance and lifestyle magazine for women, has gained international recognition at the 2017 Tabbie Awards in Cleveland.

The awards featured more than 400 entries, with nominations coming from the U.S., Canada, the U.K., Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, Singapore and South Africa.

FORBES WOMAN AFRICA has won a Silver Award in the Best Feature category (for its story on refugees in South Africa), and was placed 7th in the Top 25 Best Single Issue category for the overall content of its August/September 2016 edition that featured Africa’s Blue Economy on the cover.

“To receive editorial and design recognition in two categories, for Best Feature and Best Single Issue, is humbling indeed. Being recognized for overall content by some of the best editors in the world tells me that we are doing something right, and there is respect for the high editorial standards we uphold,” said Methil Renuka, Editor of FORBES WOMAN AFRICA.

Presented by Trade, Association and Business Publications International (TABPI), this 14th-year editorial and design competition was open to English-language B2B publications worldwide published at least three times per year.

TABPI President Paul J. Heney commented on the achievements this year: ’We saw a great deal of changes this year in the patterns of who was entering what,” he said. “We saw more publications entering in certain categories, such as Best Single Issue.

The judging was particularly tough there, and there were areas where multiple publications were very close in scoring. As a result, there are some fresh faces in our listings this year, which was very inspiring to see.”
