Reign Awards

2019 REIGN AWARDS CALL FOR ENTRIES NOW OPEN!

Award season has officially begun and it’s no different for SMPS Seattle – the call for entries for the 2019 Reign Awards program is officially open! It’s time to celebrate you and your firm’s accomplishments by submitting some of your best marketing and communications projects over the past year. All entries must be received by May 3rd. We are offering an early bird discount on the submission price and event tickets if you submit by April 19th. Award submittals are open to both member and non-member firms and individuals. This year, there are a few exciting changes and additions, so read more below.

New! Online Submission Platform: We’re very excited to announce that this year, all entries will be submitted online! There are no hard copies or binders required. SMPS is using a system called Submittable. You will be able to view categories, fill out your entry packet, upload your images, pay online and even save your submission and finish it up later.  Check back for the link at the end of March.

So, you may ask, how do we view all entries at the Reign Awards Gala if they are all online? This year we are requesting that all submissions include a 24” x 36” PDF board highlighting your entry’s main points. Boards will be printed by SMPS and will be displayed at the Reign Awards. These board will also be used for People’s Choice voting. To help get your creative juices flowing, we have created a template for your use. More information about the board requirements can be found in the Entry Packet.

Entry Packets Before getting started with Submittable, you can download the Project Entry Packet and the Individual Merit Nomination Packet which outline all the categories and changes to the Reign Awards program. We recommend you take a look, there are new categories added!

Save the Date! Mark your calendar for June 13th for the awards gala. This year’s event will be held at the Georgetown Ballroom from 5:30-8:30pm. Each year is bigger and better – you won’t want to miss this event!

Pre-order tickets! This year SMPS Seattle is providing discounted tickets for firms that entered a Reign Awards project submission. Upon completion of your submission, you'll receive a coupon code for $15 off per ticket (max 6). Discounted tickets must be purchased by 4/31/19. Online registration for tickets will be available soon.
