MDDC Advertising Contest 2015-16 Winner’s Announcement
7-28-16, Annapolis, Maryland: The Maryland | Delaware | DC Press Association is proud to announce the winners of the annual Advertising Contest in the list below*. These winners represent the best work of member publications in Maryland, Delaware and DC. There are four divisions in the contest, which group member publications into daily and non-daily categories, then further group them by print circulation. The Advertising Contest is governed by the Association’s Press Services Committee and admitted over 250 entries this year. This year, judges from the New Jersey Press Association evaluated our entries.
One Best in Category award is given in each category across all divisions. Additionally, individual awards are given for standout personnel, including Overcoming Obstacles, Idea Generator and Rookie of the Year, with an overall Sales Executive of the Year and Designer of the Year. The capstone award, one per division, is Advertising Sweepstakes. All of the winners will be included in our special awards publication, which will be given to each attendee.
The press association will celebrate all of the winners at the Advertising Awards Lunch, September 8, 2016 starting at 11:00am at the BWI Westin in Linthicum, MD. During the program, we will reveal the individual winners and their placements, the Best in Show category winners and sweepstakes awards. Attendees will have opportunity to vote on Best House Promotion Ad and Best Promotion of Publication.
