Best showcases our annual picks of the year's best advertising and top marketers. Today is the deadline to submit entries for the year's best creative advertising in 16 categories: Integrated campaign (more than $200,000), integrated campaign (less than $200,000), print ad campaign (more than $200,000), print ad campaign (less than $200,000), single print ad, direct mail (single mailing), direct mail (multiple mailings), TV, online campaign, online video, outdoor, microsite, nontraditional, trade show exhibit, mobile campaign and branded app. The ads will be judged on their creative merits, not on campaign results. Ads must have debuted in July 2010 or later, and only b-to-b ads will be considered. Visit www.btobonline.com/best2011
for more information.
Today is also the deadline for submissions for Top Marketers of 2011. To nominate someone, visit www.btobonline.com/topmarketers2011 and fill out the form, or send nominations to Kate Maddox, executive editor of BtoB, at email@example.com. Please include any marketing awards the nominee has won in the past 12 months, any new ad campaigns the nominee oversaw and any other examples of thought leadership.
Winners will be announced in the Oct. 3 issue of BtoB. We will also name our Top Marketer of 2011 and give the Best of Show creative award at the annual Best Awards Luncheon in New York on Nov. 10.
