The annual competition, now in its 11th year, is open to any company or organization producing and publishing marine industry marketing work between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2018, according to the National Marine Manufacturers Association.

The awards will be presented at the Progressive Insurance Miami International Boat Show next month.

The Neptune Awards will be presented in 21 categories, covering all areas of marketing, from national and regional magazine and digital ads and newsletters to video, product literature, PR, marketing innovation and diversity initiatives.
