American Business Media’s custom media committee is developing a awards program honoring digital custom media, the committee’s chairman Joseph Pulizzi and ABM CEO Gordon Hughes said today.

Pulizzi, group director for Penton Media’s custom media division, said the growing interest in online custom products has demonstrated the need for an awards program that honors the marketers and producers of digital custom media. The awards are planned for March 2008. ABM plans to offer more information on the upcoming awards at its two-day Digital Velocity event in March, Pulizzi said.
