How are entries judged?

Awards are judged, where appropriate, using the traditional strategic planning model of RPIE (research, planning, implementation, evaluation). Judges use a matrix to evaluate each entry, taking into account clearly demonstrates success and evidence of best practices.  Judges will also consider the structure, presentation, and clarity of each entry.

All material will remain confidential to the judges. Winning case studies may be used in post-event materials to promote best practices and the BCAs at large. By entering you agree that some or all of your entry may be used in this way.

When will the winners be announced?

We plan to announce the winners 4-6 weeks after the close of the program. Winners will be featured in a press release, on PR Couture, our newsletter and on our social media platforms.

What do the winners receive?

Each winning entry will receive a custom winner gift package including a physical award, a digital badge, as well as a complimentary ticket for our Los-Angeles get together planned for April.
