Marine Marketers of America (MMA) is extending the entry cut-off date for its Neptune Awards. Originally set for January 9, 2015, the new deadline is one week later on January 16.
The awards, which recognize outstanding work in the marketing field, will be presented at the Miami International Boat Show in February.
"We have tremendous interest in the 2015 Neptune Awards and several people have asked for extensions because they are slammed with work after the holidays,' says Sally Helme, Awards Committee Co-Chair. "We want to give as many companies as possible the opportunity to showcase their great marketing efforts from last year so we're offering a one-week extension. The 2015 Neptune Awards promise to be our biggest and best ever with more categories, the Miami awards venue and for the first time, an award for marketing diversity initiatives.'
Marine marketers can submit entries for 13 Neptune award categories: national magazine ads, national magazine ads in a series, Web advertising (banner ads), product literature, newsletters, email promotion/blasts, regional/local marketing, video, mobile apps, social media campaign, marketing innovation, special event/sales promotion and diversity marketing initiatives.
Complete Neptune Awards program details, including entry guidelines and the official entry form, are posted on the association's website: www.marinemarketersofamerica.org.
The competition is open to any company or organization producing and publishing marine industry marketing work in calendar year 2014.
MMA describes itself as a professional development organization that works to enhance the success of marketing and communications professionals involved in the recreational marine industry. The association was established in 2007.
