If you miss today’s 5pm deadline to enter the New Zealand Marketing Association’s RSVP and Nexus Awards, they would like to alert you slackers to the fact that, if you pay your extension fee, there’s a maximum of one extra week to get your entries in. Also, early bird discounts for Social Media Junction 2 run out next week.
For the RSVP and Nexus awards, the deadline is 5pm tonight, but the absolute deadline is 5pm 29 October. You just have to pay an additional $50 + GST per entry per category.
Entry forms and tips for creating a winning entry are on the awards website. RSVP entries need to be in a standard portfolio available from the NZMA (you’ll find an order form in ‘Important Information for RSVP entries’ under the Entry Forms heading on the website).
If you’ve got a query about the awards email Sylvia Devlin. And no, she says can’t be bribed into giving you even more of an extension because there’s a heap of work to be done to get all the entries logged and judging books prepared before 8 November when judging commences.
And in Social Media Junction 2 land, your opportunity to take advantage of the earlybird discount for SMJ2 will expire next week. To qualify, you must register and pay by close of business on Thursday 28 October. Of course, NZ Marketing magazine subscribers get 10 percent discount right up until the event. So you’d be a fool not to sign up.
