Marine Marketers of America issued a final call for entries for the 2013 Neptune Awards, extending the deadline until 8 p.m. EST today.

The original deadline for submissions was Wednesday. The MMA moved it to the end of the week because bad weather led to lost workdays last week in many parts of the country.

The awards, which recognize outstanding work in marine marketing, will be presented at the Miami International Boat Show in February. The sixth annual contest is open to any company or organization that produced marine industry marketing work during calendar year 2013.

Entries are being accepted in 12 categories: national magazine ads; national magazine ads in a series; Web advertising (banner ads); product literature; newsletters; email promotion/blasts; regional/local marketing; video; mobile apps; social media campaign; marketing innovation; and special event/sales promotion.

Complete program details, including entry guidelines and the official entry form, are posted on the association’s website.
