Entry Checklist

Before submitting your entries, have all necessary materials at hand.

Before starting, review the Publication Categories so you know which one each of your publications belongs to. Review each Entry Category for its requirements.

TO SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETE YOUR ONLINE ENTRY, YOU WILL NEED THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION AND MATERIALS AT HAND:

► A copy of each entry to provide you with the exact publication title, article title, issue/publication date, and other information to include in the entry form.

► A representative PDF and JPEG for each of your entries. This image may be used in the PowerPoint presentation at the awards gala.

► All PDFs and JPEGs required by your entry categories.  These should generally follow an 8.5" x 11” format.

► An editorial profile for each publication that has an entry. This must include a brief description of the publication's editorial goals or mission as well as a brief demographic profile of the publication's readership.

► Your company's payment information. If you’re using a credit card, you’ll need the card owner name, account number, expiration date, and security code. Entry fees are:

Early Bird (May 17 - June 15)

Regular Rates (June 16 - June 29)

  • Put all envelopes into one package and mail to:
