The annual Neptune Awards Program extended the deadline for submissions until Jan. 13.

The awards are given by the Marine Marketers of America and honor outstanding public relations and marketing work in the industry.

The competition is open to any company or organization producing and publishing marine industry marketing between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2015. Awards will be presented at the Miami International Boat Show in February.

“We hit a new high for the Neptunes last year with 122 entries and 14 award winners, and I am confident that the field of entries for 2015 will be even stronger,” MMA vice president and awards committee co-chair Sally Helme said in a statement. “There is a tremendous amount of marketing energy and creativity in the boating marketplace right now, and we hope that marine marketers will take advantage of the Neptune Awards program to have their creativity and innovation recognized and celebrated by their peers.”
