The event provides the industry with a stunning showcase of talent, expertise, inspiration and insight for brand marketers the world over.

WHAT IS THE QUALIFYING PERIOD?
The qualifying period for all entries is 1st September 2016 – 31st August 2017
You can enter a website, video, mobile/tablet app, print publication, social media campaign, or an entire integrated solution. Whatever the channel, so long as it is content produced for a brand, you can enter it and it stands an equal chance of winning.
But no matter which category you enter, whether or not you triumph will still come down to effectiveness, with the key to victory remaining an impressive demonstration that the content not only fulfils the client’s brief, but goes beyond expectation with clear and well-defined results.
It’s now down to you to demonstrate what fantastic content marketing can do for brands and, in turn, discover what an International Content Marketing Award can do for your agency.
The word count is as follows:
Brief – 400 words
Solution – 400 words
Results – 400 words
Then for supplementary evidence entrants commit to the following:
“You are able to upload additional pages to supplement your entry. Documents must be no more than 10 sides of A4 (only the first 10 pages of any document that is longer will be considered) and may be used for screen shots, effectiveness research and PR.
We accept all types of image files along with PDFs. The maximum file size is 30MB.
This year it is not compulsory to send physical entries. However, if you would like to supply physical supplementary evidence (e.g. a magazine), please print 4 x hard PDF copies of each entry form along with 4 hard copies of any supporting evidence (e.g. 4 x magazines) and send to The CMA (not our London office, the address below in Northampton) for the judging process.
This is because we send the entries to multiple companies to be judged.
Please make sure your hard copies arrive by 8th September.
