Frequently Asked Questions
Is there a fee to submit an entry?
No way! We want to have a chance recognize you for your achievement. All you need to do is spend the time to put together your entry and submit it to the correct category in VIP – where the BAMMIES applications are available (if you don’t have an account, please create one here).
What are the BAMMIE Awards?
The Best Advocate Marketing Awards—or BAMMIES for short—are designed to recognize the amazing achievements that are being made by forward-thinking B2B leaders across the globe who put fans, advocates and evangelists at the heart of their organization.
Who can enter?
Advocacy doesn’t start and stop with the marketing department. We encourage any individual that has demonstrated results from their customer-centric initiatives to submit for a BAMMIE award.
How do I enter the 2019 BAMMIE Awards?
Where and when will the Awards Ceremony take place?
The BAMMIES are going global this year! In order to expand the program, we will be hosting the BAMMIE Awards ceremony live online. More details to come.
How many finalists will be announced in each category?
Due to the number of high-quality submissions, we plan to announce three finalists per category on November 25th. Only one organization will win each category. All winners will receive one BAMMIE award to honor their achievement (awards will be shipped to the winners). Warning: Receiving a BAMMIE may cause jealousy amongst your colleagues.
Can I enter more than one category?
Of course! In fact, we encourage you to submit in multiple categories, you rock star!
For example, you may want to submit your Best Advocate Program submission into the Big Bam! Business Impact along with Advocate Marketing Program of The Year. You are probably showing how awesome your program is along with the metrics so it makes sense to submit in all three categories.
However, you will have to make three separate submissions but it’s small price to pay for fame and glory.
Please note that no single company will be selected as a finalist or winner in more than three categories.
Can I enter an older campaign that started two years ago?
We would prefer your entries to programs or campaigns to have a majority of their work or results in the last 12 months.
What makes a winning entry?
This really depends on the answers, the category, and the competition.
In general, our judging panel gives preference to submissions that are able to show measurable and strong results. Media assets (eg. screenshots, images, video explanations etc.) also help tell a story if it is applicable.
Also, please note, shorter entries may sometimes be more effective than longer ones especially if you’re able to distill the important facts clearly.
