To compile the list, TABPI used a formula that counted the number of gold, silver, bronze, and honourable mentions winners that each publication received in the Tabbies, an annual editorial and design awards competition, between 2004 and 2015.
Titles from New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, US, UK, Singapore and Canada are all included in The Big 95 list.
TABPI president Paul Heney says the list was put created to honour excellent design and editorial work.
"There are many publications that excel year after year, and The Big 95 honors those editors and art directors who have taken pride in what they do on a continual basis," Heney says.
Massachussetts-based publication Computerworld topped the list, while NZRetail Magazine clocked in at number 19.
Retail NZ general manager of marketing and communications, Helen Clifton, says the organisation is delighted that the magazine has been identified as one of the top 20 B2B publications in the world.
"It’s a real honour to have NZRetail magazine rubbing shoulders with some of the largest industry publications in the globe," she says. "It’s an acknowledgement of the quality and craft of relevant content for our readers."
The latest issue of NZRetail Magazine is out now, featuring an exit interview with former Warehouse Group CEO Mark Powell.
