Due to the number of high-quality submissions, we plan to announce three finalists per category on November 6th. 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).
Can I enter more than one category?
Of course! In fact, we encourage you to submit in multiple categories! However, you will have to make a separate submission for each category. A 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 within the last 12 months (ideally within the year 2020).
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.
