The first early-bird entry deadline for 2013 American Business Awards, the premier business awards program in the U.S.A., is Friday, November 16. If you haven't already done so, you can request your entry kit here and you will receive it right away.
We thought it would be helpful for communications professionals if we highlighted the top four reasons to submit entries to the 2013 ABA video awards categories.
- Earn industry status.
Submitting ABA entries is a great way to benchmark your achievements against competitors in your industry.
- Flexible categories.
There are dozens of video award categories to choose from and videos are not limited to only one category. Your organization can submit as many entries as applicable!
- Free publicity.
If chosen as a Stevie Awards winner, your organization’s video will be recognized in an awards ceremony and receive acknowledgment via press coverage and our radio cast and Internet streaming.
- Low entry fees.
Our corporate video categories are among the most reasonable. See all entry fees here.
- Simple submission requirements.
Our video competitions recognize excellence in videos first released or otherwise made public since January 1 2012. Submissions for these categories should include:
- An essay of up to 125 words describing the video's purpose and results to date
- If applicable, the video itself, in the form of an attachment or a URL, which you must attach to your entry through our attachment/link uploading tool
- Optionally, you may list creative and production credits for your work - a list of the people and organizations that contributed to its development
If you wish to submit your video offline, on DVD, for review by the judges, you must first submit your entry online. Then, print out a copy of your entry and mail it with one (1) copy of the DVD to: The Stevie Awards, 10560 Main Street, Suite 215, Fairfax, VA 22030.
2013 ABA Finalists will be announced mid-May and the 11th Annual award winners will be announced at our traditional banquet in Chicago on June 17.
