ACMA Contest Categories ’13

March 4, 2013

*EDITED: This post, originally suggesting contest categories, was updated to reflect costs. You can find the judging information — originally at the bottom of this post — as its own tab above.


The 2013 Media Contest categories can be seen below. For detailed instructions on the contest, please hit the Annual Media Contest tab above.


Before packing your entries into the envelopes, print this page. Then category by category, enter the number of entries into each competition, e.g. if your outlet will only participate in magazines and General Excellence, only fill out those sections. Multiply the category price by the number of entries on each line, then subtotal.


At the bottom of this page, you will find a place to add the subtotals to the banquet total, i.e. how many people do you plan to have attend from your outlet multiplied by $10 to cover the banquet costs.
