We're pleased to announce that the new Stevie Awards mobile websites are live. Check them out on your mobile device today, at mobile.StevieAwards.com.
That's the link to the main mobile site, from which you can navigate to any of our individual awards program sites.
Here's a rundown of the main features of the mobile sites.
On the main mobile website you'll find a consolidated calendar of all important dates for all of the Stevie Awards programs.
On each of the individual awards program sites, you'll find a calendar with important dates for only that particular awards program, such as the Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service.
In many cases you'll be able to link directly from a menu item to a page of interest.
Every page on every one of our mobile sites now features a Participate Menu in the lower lefthand corner of the screen. Open the Participate Menu to find links to pages about how to participate in Stevie Awards programs, including how to be a judge, how to get the entry kit, how to schedule text-message reminders about the entry deadlines, and more.
The Participate Menu on the main Stevies mobile site enables you to perform these functions for more than one Stevie Awards program at a time. On the individual program sites, you can perform these functions just for that individual awards programs.
Awards Programs Menu
Every page on every one of our mobile sites now features an Awards Program Menu in the lower righthand corner of the screen. Open the Awards Program Menu to find links to the mobile websites of each of our individual awards programs.
You'll find links for all six of the Stevie Awards programs that we operate. You'll also find a link to the entry-kit request form for the Golden World Awards for Public Relations Excellence, which we promote on behalf of the International Public Relations Association.
Get an Entry Kit
We've made it easy now to get an entry kit for all Stevie Awards programs, or just one in particular.
The homepage of each of the new mobile sites features a simple form to fill out if you'd like to be emailed an entry kit.
Fill out the form on the main mobile site, and you can request the entry kits for any or all of the Stevie Awards programs.
If you complete the form on one of our individual awards program sites, you'll get the entry kit for just that particular awards program.
Schedule Text-Message Reminders
This is a brand-new feature that we've introduced with the new mobile sites that we're very excited about.
Now you can subscribe to receive text-message reminders six days in advance of all of the entry deadlines for a particular Stevie Awards programs.
If you subcribe to this feature on the main mobile site, you'll have the option to opt-in to text message reminders about the entry deadlines for any or all of the Stevie Awards programs.
If you subscribe on any of the individual awards program sites, you'll opt-in only for the reminders about the deadlines for that particular program.
Give this new feature a try. If you decide that you'd like to opt-out of receiving text-message reminders, that will be easy to do. Each time you receive a text message from us you'll also receive an opt-out link.
What Else Can I Do? Menu
Finally, the mobile homepage for each of our individual awards programs features a What Else Can I Do? Menu.
Many of these links you'll also find in the Participate Menu on each of our program sites. But this menu is another easy way to access many of the functions and features our entrants and judges want to see on our sites.
So what can't you do on our new mobile websites?
You can't submit entries through the new Stevie Awards mobile websites, you can't (yet) apply to be a judge, and you can't (yet) perform judging. Those functions will continue to be exclusive to our desktop websites, at www.StevieAwards.com. Most tablet devices will continue to direct to our desktop sites rather than the new mobile sites, so you can always submit your entries and perform judging from a tablet, if you're on the go.
Speaking of our desktop sites, they're up next on the renovation agenda. Look for our new-and-improved desktop sites to go live in January 2016.
