Marine Marketers of America is accepting entries for the Neptune Awards. The awards recognize creative concepts, campaigns and initiatives across the marine industry.

“Competition continues to intensify each year of the program, both from the quantity of entries and, more significantly, the caliber of content submitted,” Kristen Frohnhoefer, MMA vice president and a former Neptune Awards chair, said in a statement.

The contest is open to any company, agency or organization that produces marketing communications materials for external audiences. Submissions must be materials released from January to December 2021, and the deadline to enter is Dec. 6. Winners will be announced in February.

“Earning a Neptune Award has become a badge of creative honor in the marine industry, and we’re seeing more of our peers vying for an opportunity to earn this recognition for their own marketing efforts,” Neptune chair Victor Gonzalez of Sportsman Boats added.
