The 2019 Bespoke Communication Awards are open to any relevant work/contributions executed between Jan. 1, 2018, and December 31, 2018. We are a global award program; open to international submissions.
Work may be entered on behalf of individuals, agencies, and companies. Be sure to get any relevant approvals before submitting.
Loosely defined, this includes apparel, shoes, accessories, handbags, beauty, fitness, wellness, travel and home. If you have any questions regarding if your brand/submission falls into the category of fashion and lifestyle, please email email@example.com
Once you purchase your award submission you’ll receive an email with a link to your submission form. We will also send you periodic reminders until we receive your entry, up to the final submission deadline on 4/15.
All possible. You may submit multiple entries for a single award, or submit an entry across multiple categories as long as it meets the requirements outlined. Each entry will require a separate entry fee (simply change the quantity as needed upon checkout) and you will need to submit individual award submissions for each.
Each year we hand-pick a small group of industry experts to service on our judging panel. PR Couture founder Crosby Noricks acts as tie-breaker as needed.
Awards are judged using the traditional strategic planning model of RPIE (research, planning, implementation, evaluation). Judges use a matrix to evaluate each entry. Scores are combined and the highest scoring entries are then evaluated further by PR Couture to determine the winning entry.
Judges are allowed to submit relevant work for consideration. Any judge who has a potential conflict of interest, including, but not limited to, working for an organization that submitted that an entry and/or being involved with any aspect of the project, will simply not be allowed to judge that entry.
All material will remain confidential to the judges.
Nope! We run this as a lean program that lives entirely online (minus your fancy award trophy and total bragging rights!). However, we fully encourage any excuse to dress up and celebrate so dance parties, celebratory toasts and the like are heartily supported.
Each winner will receive a custom Winner gift package including a physical award and a variety of hand-picked items. Trust us, you’ll be grinning wider than on your birthday. Winners will also be profiled on PR Couture and across our social media profiles and included in our official release.
Due to our judging process and time constraints, all submissions must be final and will not be available for editing. Please make sure you submit your best work the first time around.
You can withdraw an entry at anytime; however, refunds will not be permitted.
If you have any questions about the program, issues submitting your entry, or would like to discuss remaining sponsorship opportunities, email Lindsey Palmer, BCA Program Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org
