Philly’s Phinest Marketing Communication Awards
SMPS Philadelphia’s Marketing Communications Awards is a local marketing awards program modeled on the SMPS Headquarters program that recognizes excellence in marketing communications. This is an opportunity for SMPS Member and Non-Member A/E/C marketing professionals from throughout the Philadelphia metropolitan region to be recognized for their contributions to their firm and its success. We are accepting submissions in the five most popular categories to allow you to showcase the pieces you have worked on over the past year. Categories include Corporate Identity, Website, Direct-Mail Campaign, Special Event, and Social Media Campaign. New this year, we have included a sixth Miscellaneous Category for entries that do not correspond to one of our top five categories, but aligns with one of the other Headquarters Categories. In addition to local recognition, submissions will receive feedback from judges on their entries with enough time to submit to SMPS Headquarters MCA competition. Winners of the ‘Best in Show’ and ‘People’s Choice’ categories will be eligible to receive the SMPS Headquarters MCA entry fee for their submission (up to $330).
*Note: Firms submitting entries must have an office within SMPS Philadelphia’s regional area, which includes the Philadelphia Metro Area, southern New Jersey, Delaware and the Lehigh Valley; Previous National MCA award winners are not eligible. Winners are not guaranteed in every category.
