DETROIT — Plastics News has been named a finalist for four awards from the American Society of Business Publication Editors (ASBPE).
The awards are in four separate categories: show dailies, for our special issues from the Fakuma trade show in Friedrichshafen, Germany; webcast, for Plastics News Now; special supplement, for our Nov. 17 25th anniversary issue; and company profile, for an Aug. 18 feature on Wisconsin injection molder Nicolet Plastics Inc.
“Four awards is outstanding, I'm very proud of our team,” said Editor Don Loepp. “We've won many awards for our show dailies over the years, and I'm especially pleased that the ASBPE judges once again are recognizing us in that category."
Plastics News has won gold, silver and bronze awards, respectively, for its NPE show dailies in 2000, 2006 and 2012, as well as a silver national Azbee for its 2001 Plastics USA show dailies.
The Fakuma dailies and PNN are up for both national and regional Azbee awards. The anniversary issue and company profile will win regional awards from ASBPE. The exact level of the award will be announced after the national awards are announced July 24 in New York.
