GET STARTED
 You will automatically establish an account when you create a basic profile. You may save your work and return to this site as often as needed as long as you complete and submit all parts of the entry submission by March 23 (by March 2 for early discount fee rate). You can edit your submission once you have placed it in the cart at any time by clicking the button "make changes" on the cart page.

Entries must be submitted as instructed by each category submission requirement. For details on category requirements, please click here.  

How to Enter Multiple Entries
Once an application is completed for a particular entry and in the shopping cart, that entry submission may then be copied for submission to another category by duplicating the entry form, but you will need to update all the entry information on page 2 and 3. Example: You submit a project to the Advertising category. If you then wish to submit another project to the Video category, you would return to the submission portal, log in to your account, select your previously submitted entry, copy it, and then enter the name of the new video entry, select video category and update all the information requested on pages 2 and 3 of entry form.

To receive the multiple entry discount you must have all entries completed and in the cart at time of payment. If you have already submitted an entry and paid, you will be charged full entry fee for any additional entries submitted.
