The Institute of Promotional Marketing has officially launched the call for entries for its 2017 awards programme with the publication on its website of the IPM Awards 2017 Handbook.
The Handbook, which can be downloaded as a pdf from the IPM website, www.theipm.org.uk, lists entry categories, costs, top tips on how to write entries and terms and conditions of entry. Examples of ‘best-in-class’ award-winning campaigns from previous IPM Awards are available separately in the Case Studies section of the IPM website, for agencies and clients to refer to while writing this year’s entries.
Richard Pink, the IPM’s head of awards judging & entries, says: “We’re delighted to announce The IPM Awards 2017 are officially now open, so its time to submit your Awards entries and celebrate the industry talents, hard work and successes of 2016! As the industry body for promotional marketing, the IPM is here to proudly showcase and champion your work over the past year, and ensure you and your peers receive the industry-wide recognition you deserve.”
Entry is open to any campaigns which were created by a UK-based agency or on behalf of a UK-based company. Agencies and companies do not have to be IPM members to enter, but IPM members receive preferential discounts on costs.
The annual IPM Awards have been running for more than 40 years, highlighting the best of the best in promotional marketing. The picture above shows trophies from the IPM Awards 2016 ready for presentation.
The trophies will be presented at the IPM Awards 2017 Gala Dinner on Wednesday June 7th 2017. For further information on the dinner, see the IPM site
