Marketing Methods Competition

This annual competition recognizes outstanding achievement in marketing among PIMA members. Gold, Silver, Bronze Awards, are based on a minimum point threshold. Judging is based upon Results first, for most categories, (50%) and then Marketing Strategy (25%), Creative Execution (25%). (The exception is for “New Media” where creativity and marketing strategy will receive more points—MMC FAQs & Entry Packet.) All Gold award winners are automatically entered into consideration for the annual Best of PIMA Award. All are presented at the MidYear Meeting. Entry Boards are displayed at the MidYear Meeting where awards, including the Judges Choice and Best of PIMA, are announced. See below for categories & complete entry information.
