The Marine Marketers of America issued a call for entries for the third annual Neptune Awards for Marketing Excellence.

The awards, which recognize outstanding work in the marketing field, will be presented Oct. 28 at the organization's annual meeting at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

The 2010 Neptune Awards include nine categories: national magazine ads, national magazine ads/series, Web advertising (banners), product literature, press kits, newsletters, e-mail promotions/blasts and marketing innovation.

A new category was added this year: regional/local marketing, recognizing the best marketing program by a marine establishment in a local market.

To enter, download the entry form and submit the appropriate fees.

The competition is open to any company or organization producing marine industry marketing work from Sept. 1, 2009 to Sept. 1, 2010. The deadline for submission is Sept. 17.

For questions about the 2010 Neptune Awards program, contact MMA board member Cindy Pechous at (312) 946-6239 or e-mail awards@marinemarketersofamerica.com.
