How To Enter

The 2019 NOVA Awards submission period is open through March 18th, good luck to all entrants!

Each entry must be represented in its original format and must have been produced, implemented, or run during the 2018 calendar year by a firm or individual located in Iowa. If the entry was directed by a company, or a branch office of a company, and produced by another entity (agency, production firm, etc.), at least one of those must be located in Iowa.

It is acceptable if the work was created for another geographic market, as long as the entrant clarifies that an Iowa location was involved in its direction or production.

The firm or individual submitting the entry must have been involved in the direction, development, production, and/or implementation of the submitted entry.

Each entry must be prepared according to these guidelines and digital requirements listed below. Any entry that fails to follow these guidelines and the digital requirements are subject to disqualification.

To view a list of the 2019 categories, please follow this link.

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