How to Enter
Each entry consists of an entry form, a synopsis about your entry (see below) and samples of the entry. Be sure to check the box indicating your income size: Class One is for chambers with a total budget of $1 million and above; Class Two is for chambers with a total budget of less than $1 million.
A panel of three judges will review and rate the entries based on originality, design/visual impact, message clarity/effectiveness, and results achieved.
Best in Show
Grand Award winners in the four categories automatically qualify for a second round of judging at ACCE's Annual Convention to determine a Best in Show winner. A Best in Show trophy will be awarded in each of the two size classes.
