Do I need to answer the “budget” question in Categories 3 to 25?
Our jurors hold senior-level posts in the industry, so they understand the desire to not reveal certain specifics. However, don’t allow your budgets to be among those hidden factors. Such details allow entities and campaigns of varying sizes to be compared effectively. Your budget underscores the conditions under which a campaign was executed. And with Healthcare Agency categories, the more detail shared about annual revenues, the better. And remember: Respect of confidentiality is paramount to both MM&M and its jurors.
What is needed to satisfy the requirement to include “budget” for any and all entries among the Healthcare Marketing Awards (Categories 3 to 25)?
Budget is defined as “all in”—that is, the total for agency fee, out-of-pocket, media, sponsorships, etc. If you are comfortable divulging specific spends for the aforementioned, go ahead and list them.
How do you define “product revenue” for the Multichannel Campaign awards, which are grouped by Small to Medium Product Size (Category 21) and Large Product Size (Category 22)?
Product revenue is defined as annual U.S. sales for the product in question.
Do I need to submit a video as support material?
Video support material is greatly encouraged. For further details, please refer to the support material section of this entry kit.
How is my entry judged?
After entries are submitted, a panel of jurors will begin a thorough process that includes pre-scoring to select a top 10, subsequent deliberation at a live judging day, and the ultimate decisions of each Gold and Silver.
Can I change my written entry and or support material after I’ve submitted and paid?
No. Unfortunately, you will not be allowed access to your entry once it has been submitted and paid for.
Can I remove an entry after it has been submitted and paid for?
No. If you have an issue, please contact Adele Durham at 646 638 6157 or firstname.lastname@example.org
