Marine Marketers of America is now accepting entries for the 2019 Neptune Awards competition.

The annual contest, now in its 12th year, is open to any company or organization producing and publishing marine industry marketing work between January 1 and December 31, 2019. Entries will be accepted through January 13.

The awards will be presented at the Miami International Boat Show in February 2020.

Awards will be presented in 20 categories including national and regional magazine and digital ads and newsletters, video, product literature, PR, marketing innovation and diversity initiatives. In addition, a best-in-show “King Neptune” will be awarded to the top entry among all categories.

“The Neptune Awards have become increasingly competitive through the years as reflected in the exceptionally high level of creativity and quality in the entries submitted,” said MMA vice president and awards committee co-chair Sally Helme in a statement. “We encourage marine marketers to take advantage of this opportunity to promote and showcase their best work to their peers in the industry.”

Last year’s competition drew a record high of 172 entries in 20 categories from 48 companies, according to Helme.
