MMA pushes back award deadline

The Marine Marketers of America is extending the deadline for its fourth annual Neptune Awards for Marketing Excellence until 5 p.m. (CST) Friday, but only for entries submitted by e-mail.

The awards recognize outstanding work in the marine marketing field and will be presented at the organization’s annual meeting Oct. 27 during the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

The 2011 Neptune Awards include eight categories: national magazine ads; national magazine ads/series; web advertising (banners); product literature; newsletters; e-mail promotion/blasts; regional/local marketing; and marketing innovation. Three new categories were added this year -- online corporate brand image video; mobile application; and social media campaign.

The competition is open to any company or organization producing marine-industry marketing work from Sept. 1, 2010 to Sept. 1, 2011.
