• Capital Marketing Awards

    This program is for Associates only and allows them to present their more creative marketing and social media efforts. Be sure to read the details and examine the seven categories open just for you.

    A past winning entry can be entered again if significant changes have been made.

    Important note: We have 2 levels of membership within Metro DC based upon your gross receipts and you are encouraged to apply for an award based upon your membership level…this means the smaller firms won’t compete against larger firms.

    • Membership category 1:  Less than $500,000 gross receipts
    • Membership category 2:  More than $500,001 gross receipts

    Preparing a Winning Entry

    Your ability to present your project(s) in a manner that helps judges distinguish your project will go a long way to set you apart from the competition.

    1. Plan your entry.  Arrange your photos, marketing statements, etc. in a logical fashion so that an individual not familiar with your campaign can easily understand.
    2. Describe the objective of the advertisement or social media campaign and any obstacles and how they were handled and overcome.
    3. Photos – Include photos and artwork of those shown in your presentation.  Use high resolution (300 dpi or better), and in JPG, TIFF, or EPS format.
