This is your opportunity to show off your most inspired ads and campaigns. The BtoB Best Awards celebrate the most innovative and creative work done by b-to-b marketers and their agencies across all types of media, from print and online to outdoor and experiential.
When BtoB magazine merged with sibling publication Ad Age earlier this year, continuing the awards was a given. As previous winners have demonstrated, there is nothing boring about b-to-b.
"Some of the most creative work today is coming out of b-to-b companies," said Ad Age Executive Editor Matt Quinn. "Marketers and their agencies have really started appealing to customers as people, not just professionals. There's a true emotional connection being made."
Deadline for entries is Monday, October 20, 2014, 5:00 p.m. Eastern. Submit here. UPDATE: Deadline is now Monday, November 3, 2014, 5:00 p.m. Eastern.
