Posted by Liz Dean on Wed, May 30, 2012 @ 12:12 PM

Wednesday, 27 June, is the final entry deadline for The 2012 (Ninth Annual) International Business Awards, the world's premier business awards competition. All individuals and organizations worldwide may submit nominations to the IBAs. 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 four reasons to submit entries to the 2012 IBA video awards categories.  

  1. Earn industry status. Gold Stevie Award
    Submitting IBA entries is a great way to benchmark your achievements against competitors in your industry.
  2. Low entry fees.
    Our corporate video categories are among the most reasonable. See all entry fees here.
  3. 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!
  4. 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.

Winners of the competition will be celebrated at the ninth annual awards banquet on Monday, 15 October at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Seoul, South Korea.
