NEDMA Awards are given based on a combination of factors, including the results of each entry and the excellence of the solution. Results are essential in all categories except "Technique." Judges are REQUIRED to disqualify entries with no results.
By including results, you will assist the judges in identifying the most effective and creative direct marketing solutions. Please use the results section of your entry form to list response rates, orders, sales and profitability figures; traffic generation figures; response, conversion, and renewal rates; and cost per response or sale. If you are unable to share actual numbers, please use comparison figures. For example: "Response improved by 50% over previous direct mail."
Gold, Silver, Bronze place awards will be given in each category and a single award will be given for Best of Show. Winners will be honored at the NEDMA Awards Show & Banquet in June.
