Please see below for the Best in Biz Awards 2017 winners press release template. For judging panel quotes, which may also be incorporated into your press release, please see the judges’ quotes page.
When editing the template or writing your own press release, please be sure to note the full correct name of this awards program: it is ‘Best in Biz Awards’. It is NOT ‘Best in Biz’, ‘Best-in-Biz’ or ‘the Best in Biz Awards’ and as such, it should not be made singular/plural as in ‘won three Best in Biz awards’ or ‘was honored with a Best in Biz award’. Such singular/plural uses as in the above two examples are incorrect – please rephrase with e.g. ‘won two awards in Best in Biz Awards’ or ‘was recognized in three categories in Best in Biz Awards’ instead. The name should only be used in full, with the correct spelling: ‘Best in Biz Awards’.
