The Professional Marketing Association honors the best examples of marketing by members in the previous year with its annual Markie Awards. The awards provide an opportunity for each member, and their organization, to be recognized publicly for their accomplishments.
The Markie Awards are open to any member of the Professional Marketing Association in good standing. Only marketing pieces developed for use and/or implemented between October 1, 2015 and September 20, 2016 are eligible. A piece may be older if results were not available last year. All submissions must be new and not entered into previous years’ competitions.
There is no limit to the number of categories each paid PMA member can enter; however, you are only allowed two entries per category. A non-refundable payment of $12 per entry or $100 for an unlimited number of entries is required, per paid PMA member. Checks need to be made payable to “Professional Marketing Association”.
