Submit Your Best Work: Entries Are Open For The Native Ad Awards!
As many of you know, I'm a member of the board of the Native Advertising Institute, based in Copenhagen. As such, I get the distinct honor of judging the annual Native Ad Awards, where I get to review best-in-class native advertising and branded content campaigns from around the world.
Every year, it's an incredible experience to see how media companies of all types are finding unique and creative ways to work with advertisers and help deliver their messages to their audience.
Submissions are now open for the 2018 Native Advertising Awards, and I want to see your best work!
What Kind Of Work To Submit:
One of the best things about the Native Ad Awards is that it's not just a single "native" category tacked onto a huge list of others in some generalized award competition. These awards ~get us~ and the entire list of 33 categories was created with native teams, studios and realities in mind.
Here are just a few of the categories you can submit your work for:
Organizational: Small Studio of the Year, Large Studio of the Year, Native Advertising Marketer of the Year, Brand of the Year, Platform of the Year.
Channel: Best use of Influencer, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Podcast, Email & More.
Format: Best use of Infographic, Text, Video, Video Series & More.
Strategy: Best campaign, Most Effective Campaign, Most Creative Campaign, Best B2B, Best B2C, Best Small Budget Campaign, Best User Activation & More.
ME! Now, listen, there's admittedly a good chance I'll have to recuse myself from a few, given that I know so many of you, but still...
We have an awesome panel of judges that includes marketing greats like Lee Odden, renowned content experts like Robert Rose of CMI, fellow Native Ad Institute Board members like Stephanie Losee, and folks from IAB, AdWeek, SAP, and so many more.
The Native Advertising Awards are open to all media companies, brands, organizations, companies, agencies, and studios that produce native advertising. For this year's awards, all entries must include work created and/or published from July 2017 – July 2018. Entries can originate from any country in the world, so this is your chance for global recognition for the work that you and your team do!
