Judging Criteria

A panel of marketing professionals from the Colorado AMA Chapter will serve as the 2018 AMA inNOVAtion judges. The judges make all decisions regarding eligibility, finalists and winners.

Judges score Objectives, Strategy, Tactics and Results on a 1 to 10 scale with results being weighted the most in the judging process. The entry with the highest number of points is the winner in that category. The judging committee may move an entry to a different category and/or divide or merge categories, as it deems appropriate.

Finalist Notification

Up to three award winners will be chosen in each of the 12 categories, at the discretion of the award judges. If no entries meet the set minimum requirements in a category, no award will be made.

Finalists will be notified prior to the NOVA Awards event. All winners from each category will be announced during the event.
