It’s all about the work at the 36th annual Caples Awards, hosted by Direct Marketing News.

Caples Call for Entries

Sometimes a piece of marketing creative is so scintillating—so downright courageous and engaging—it makes the hair stand up on the back of your neck.

That’s why there’s the Caples Awards, an awards program dedicated to honoring the best and most original interactive, digital, integrated, and direct marketing creative from around the world.

With just under two months to go until this year’s deadline—hint: creative directors need to get those entries in—the time to nominate courageous creative is now. With 25+ categories to choose from— including shiny new ones like “digital content” and crowd-pleasers like “Courageous Client”—there are multiple ways for agencies to submit their work. The deadline is Sept. 6, so creative directors need to get cracking if they want their company to join the ranks of top global agencies from across the globe that make it their business to enter Caples ever year. We’re talking the U.S., Austria, Belgium, England, Germany, Spain, New Zealand, Switzerland, and a host of other creative hotbeds.

Once all the entries are in, our panel of top international judges will descend upon NYC for two intense days of closed-door discussion, deliberation, and lively debate (think lots of coffee) as they share their unique perspectives on the work and come out at the other end exhausted, enlivened, and ready for more.

Following the judging period, all are invited to join Caples for the big reveal on November 14, where attendees get to sip cocktails—and drink in the world’s most creative work gallery-style—while the winners are announced.

This year’s Caples will put an added emphasis on the Courageous Client Award—an established Caples category, to honor those who boldly venture into the unexplored and achieve the unexpected.

“Courage inspires creativity and creativity means Caples,” says Joanna Harp, publisher of Direct Marketing News. “The work honored by Caples isn’t just sexy—it’s brave, and that’s what makes the Caples winners circle such a source of inspiration.”

So, for the agencies leaders who want to have their work judged by some of the top creatives in the industry, it’s time to download the Caples entry kit. As we said, the deadline to submit entries for all categories is September 6, 2013 at 11:59 p.m. ET. We’re waiting.
