The competition is open to newspapers, magazines, TV and radio stations and networks, news Web sites, online classified Web sites, and others broadly in the “news media” field. We are seeking best practices in audience, revenue, and brand growth at news media companies regardless the platform. Further questions about eligibility may be directed at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is a 330-word limit for each field.
The database allows 6 files per entry. However, compiling one PDF with all files is a bonus in the judges' eyes as a better way to review and judge the entries. Please bear in mind the 20MB size limit.
National brands serve an entire country and not just a few geographic regions within a country. In smaller countries, virtually all news brands are national. Regional brands serve cities, communities, and regions — a fixed geography within a country.
From where did the work emanate? If it was created at your corporate office or a shared-services operation, then it is a “Group” entry. If it was created by your Regional brand team, then it is “Regional” entry. If you are part of a Group, you likely will be submitting in multiple segments depending the work's emanation.
Since the work emanated from the group office, it's a Group Segment entry.
INMA takes an open-minded view of what a “media company” is. Generally, we would suggest press associations or consultants submit entries in the segment they serve (national, regional, group). If you are a supplier or consultant representing a media company, we suggest submitting the entry under the media company's name.
Yes, each department can submit their own entries separately and would have a unique login and password. The contact person for that specific department is listed under that unique login and password.

Yes, one file can have numerous PDF pages representing various creative elements for the campaign. Make certain the size of the file does not exceed 20MB and the sections do not exceed the 300-word limit. Consider your submission as a story consisting of an introduction, an explanatory section with the “why's” (the challenge to overcome) and its outcome. Please don't forget to include how you solved your challenge, which helps judges get a better picture of the internal creative process. Avoid long texts, be explicit, and to the point. Photos, videos, and audiovisual material also contribute to get the spirit of your initiative at a glance.
Once you have uploaded all your files, click “Review and Submit” on your screen. You will be able to review content you have entered for each entry. If you click on the hyperlink associated with your files, you will be able to view the image.
You can submit the whole page, just the artwork, or both if you prefer. Submit the creative that best represents your campaign.
The system will allow certain files to be uploaded, but not all judges have the software that is capable of viewing files other than (JPG, PDF, MP3, WMA, WMV, MOV, GIF, PNG). Please convert your files to the supported formats, or your campaign might not be judged in its entirety.
