Six Brand New Master Categories

Entries are now being accepted for the 28th annual Big Apple Awards!  Submit your best work of 2015 in one (or more) of nearly 80 distinct award categories - including several that are brand new for 2016:

The Next Big Thing (Innovative Approaches to Execution);

Infographics; and

Target Marketing for Animal Care, Men, Women, and Youth (each with subcategories).


100% Online Award Entry Process

Now in its third year, the OMNI online entry system is a powerful but easy-to-use tool for the Big Apple Awards community.

For 2016 we introduced a few upgrades to make the submission process easier for you and the review process easier for the panel of judges.  Required fields have been created for information previously requested in the two-page summaries; we have also provided opportunities for you to provide supplemental information – text, charts, graphics, presentations, research, or other assets – that you think may give your entry a competitive edge!  And certifications have been added to clarify the geographic area of focus for your campaign (either developed within the New York metro region or developed elsewhere for execution in the New York area). 

As always, you’ll be able to upload digital files directly into this platform … tag a single campaign entry for consideration in up to three award categories … complete your entries over time (simply save your progress and return at your convenience until all information is complete) … and conclude the entry process by submitting payment via a secure server.  

Links to additional details and resources to support the entry process can be found on the menu bar after you login. 

When you need assistance please reach out to a member of the Big Apple 2016 team (more e-mail and phone options can be found on the CONTACT page).


Mark Your Calendars

Enter by the Early Bird Deadline of 11:59 pm (Eastern) on Sunday, February 14th to save $100 on each entry.  Submit the same campaign for more than one category and you can save an additional $75 each on two more categories entries (three max!).  All entries are due by midnight on February 29th.  Sorry ... no extensions beyond the deadlines will be granted.

Finalists will be notified the week of April 4th.  Awards will be presented during the annual Big Apple Gala at the Mandarin Oriental New York on Thursday evening, June 2nd.
