Annual Awards

The Awards Committee works all year long to bring about a successful awards program for the chapter. The Awards Gala marks the culmination of this process.

Each year, we invite members and friends of SMPS Boston to submit entries to SMPS Boston’s Awards for Marketing Communications and Marketing Achievements. Awards are given in multiple categories in order to encompass all aspects of the profession. Categories are:

Marketing Communications

  • Corporate Identity
  • Special Event Marketing
  • Social Media
  • Website
  • Holiday Piece
  • Brand Awareness Campaign
  • Marketing Collateral
  • Internal Communications
  • Video
  • Recruitment and Retention Communications

Entries are also considered for the following additional honors:

  • Best in Show
  • Best in Show-Small Firm
  • People’s Choice
  • Best In-house Design

This year we are adding a new honor to celebrate the work of a small firm with the Best in Show Small Firm award. To qualify as a small firm, you must have 50 employees or less.

Judging is carried out by a jury process, with as many as 15 judges participating each year. Many firms choose to enter their work for the visibility and recognition an award can bring to the firm and marketing department. Award recipients are recognized at our annual Awards Gala in June. The evening begins with a networking cocktail reception, followed by dinner and culminates in the presentation of awards to firms and individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the industry.
