    “BEST OF CLASS” AWARD

    Who can apply: Distributors/Agencies and Suppliers

    We know 2020 was dominated by COVID and PPE sale and there was less opportunity to be creative, so show us your best prior case history where your promotional products were a hit!

     What we are looking for:

    n  Is it a fresh twist on a staple product? Was it something mundane used in a unique way?

    n  Creative use of logo and/or decoration technique.

    n  Does it have the likelihood of being kept or passed on?

    n  Does the product have broad appeal?

    n  Was the product an effective communication tool?

    n  Was it a fan favorite? Was it a showstopper?

    Each question will be judged on a 1-5 scale (1-lowest, 5 highest). You do not need to have all the elements to enter, the winner will be chosen from the highest overall score.

    Gather the names of those who contributed. Please credit all members of your team in the application so they will be recognized properly in press releases and other PPAF winner announcements.  

    Obtain permission, if needed, to use any client images.
    Submissions are only complete when registration is paid in full.

    All information will be kept in confidence and used for only judging purposes and official announcements.
