Number of Submissions: There are no restrictions on the amount of submissions. One completed entry form (see link in the tab at the top of the page) must accompany each entry.

Submissions Guidelines: Each submission only requires very basic information (including the Agency/Company Name, Contact Person, Contact Information, Title of Entry, and the Client/Brand), along with the media files that will represent your campaign on the voting site. Absolutely no written submission is necessary for submission. Each campaign will be evaluated by voters solely based on the campaign materials.

Media File Guidelines: All ad files must conform to the below described specifications.

Featured Images:
Each entry must include a featured image. This static image is what users will first see on the entry directory voting website. Featured images must be provided for all entry types including websites and video submissions. Below is an example of a past year’s voting site. The feature image is what appears in each of the boxes.

Additional Images:

Besides the feature image, you can submit up to four additional images. Once a voter clicks on your feature image on the voting site, they will be able to scroll through your additional images and/or videos as well as click any links you provide to outside sites. Below is an example of what viewers see after they click on the feature image, with any additional images they can view displayed as thumbnails underneath the image being viewed.

Print Advertisement Entry Specifications:
