Posted by Liz Dean on Wed, Apr 25, 2012 @ 03:42 PM

Today is the final entry deadline for The 2012 (10th Annual) American Business Awards, the premier business awards program in the U.S.A. If you haven't yet done so, you can request an entry kit here and you will receive it right away.

We thought it would be helpful for communications professionals if we highlighted the top three reasons to submit entries to the 2012 ABA video awards categories.  

  1. The Stevie AwardsFlexible 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!
  2. Low entry fees.
    Our corporate video categories are among the most reasonable. See all entry fees here.
  3. 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.

Our video competitions recognize excellence in videos first released or otherwise made public since January 1 2011. Submissions for these categories should include:

  1. An essay of up to 100 words describing the video's purpose and results to date.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

2012 ABA Finalists will be announced mid-May and the 10th Annual award winners will be announced at our traditional banquet on June 18th at the Marriott Marquis in New York City.

Want more ways to highlight your organization's efforts? We have several corporate awards categories that may be of interest including: app awards, live event awards, and website awards.
