Entry Fee

The cost of each primary entry is $420. You may choose to submit that same exact entry into a second or third category (which only applies to the Campaign and Technique Awards) for an additional fee of $260 per submission. For example, if you submit any one entry into three categories, the fee would be: $420 + $260 + $260 = $940.

The entry fee for Business Awards - In-house and Business Awards - Agency is $460. The entry fee for the Education Awards is $159.

Any entries submitted after October 2 will incur a late fee of $260 per entry. No exceptions.
