On October 24, BtoB will publish a special issue featuring the best advertising, brands and marketers of 2005. The following are guidelines for nominations:
• Best Advertising of 2005: We will accept nominations for the year's best advertising in four categories: single print ad, single TV spot, single online ad and integrated campaign. The ads will be judged on their creative, not on campaign results. Ads must have originated in this calendar year, and only b-to-b ads will be considered. Hard copies of print ads are required; TV spots must be submitted on VHS tape; online ads must be submitted on CD. Send entries via postal mail to Mary Morrison, BtoB, 360 N. Michigan Ave., 6th Floor, Chicago, IL 60601. The deadline for Best Advertising nominations is Sept. 12, 2005.
• Top Marketers: We will accept nominations for Top Marketers of 2005. To nominate someone for the Top Marketers list, e-mail Ellis Booker (firstname.lastname@example.org), detailing any marketing awards the nominee has won in the past 12 months, any new breakthrough campaigns the nominee oversaw and any other examples of thought leadership. The deadline for the Top Marketers nominations is Sept. 12, 2005.
