Program Regulations

SMPS DC follows the SMPS HQ program format for both judging criteria and entry format. Our awards timeline is selected strategically to allow DC chapter firms to incorporate jury feedback for their SMPS HQ Marketing Communications Awards entries. Firms submitting entries must have an office within the greater DMV area. Previous National MCA award winners are not eligible. Winners are not guaranteed in every category.

Entries due 5:00 pm on January 31, 2018.
