What's the difference between the Industry, Channel, Craft and Nexus Awards?
Each Award recognises a different area of Direct Marketing. The Industry Sector Awards allows campaigns to be judged fairly alongside others in their particular sector. Channel Awards recognises how you can use different channels to engage audiences. Nexus Awards celebrate the tools that form the basis of a successful response driven campaign and Craft Awards celebrate the 'art' of the individual elements within response marketing campaigns. Find out about more about the different awards and why you should enter here.
How many awards can I enter for each campaign?
You can enter the same campaign into only one Industry Sector, but as many Channel, Craft and Nexus categories as you like. You can only enter Craft if you have also entered the same campaign into a Channel and/or Industry Sector Award.
Why do I need to have entered Industry and/or Channel to be able to enter Craft?
The NZ Direct Marketing Awards celebrate effective campaigns, and therefore effective creative, so the main award categories are judged on how successful they were in driving response. You can enter a campaign into Craft categories but the campaign must also be entered into Industry Sector or Channel.
What happens if I register an entry online but then I decide it's not worth it? Do I still have to submit it?
Don't worry, only entries that you have actively sent to the Marketing Association will be judged (and charged). If you don't want to send a registered entry, just don't!
Can I change the information in the online entry registration form? i.e. I need to update the campaign details?
Yes you may edit any of the details on your entry form right up until 5pm 31 October 2016. You will need to go through the form and re-click the register button at the end for details to be saved. Should you need to change anything after this date and time, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
How do I cancel an entry I have registered?
You do not need to cancel a registered entry, just don't send the entry in and it will not be entered into the NZDM awards.
Do I need to provide creative material as part of my entry?
You only need to supply creative material for Industry Sector, Channel or Craft Award entries. This must be supplied in the standard portfolios available from the Marketing Association. You can download the portfolio order form here. For all creative material guidelines refer to the last page of your entry form.
