How to enter the DMA Awards 2017


A helping hand goes a long way. Especially when it comes to navigating the choppy waters of Awards submissions.

We've put together a handy guide that tells you the key basics to submitting your campaign to the DMA Awards. Afterall a DMA is not only rewardingly hard to win, but refreshingly straight-forward to enter.

First things first – the DMA Awards are now open for entries. 

You need to enter online using this link or by hitting “Enter Now” on the left-hand side of the screen.

Download this how to enter guide in a PDF here.

In the meantime, get yourself up to speed on the basics of submitting an entry to the DMA Awards with a quick look through the five steps to the DMA Awards entry process.

Remember: all entries must be submitted online

1. Campaign overview

Choose the categories you’d like to enter. You can enter as many as you wish. You may tailor the entry for different categories. Navigate your entries by clicking My Entries.

2. The team

Tell us the individuals and companies to credit for the work.

3. Campaign in summary

This will be what judges use to aid their debate and fight for your campaign. Be concise. Get to the key elements quickly, but don’t hold back on essential information.

4. Campaign in detail

Expand on your work. Sensitive information should be put in the "for judges eyes’ only" box.

Upload and notify us of any supporting material you are going to provide to support your entry. Click here for a guide to supporting material. 

5. Client submission

Do a pre-flight check to see your entry laid out in the way the DMA judges will look at it. Once you’re happy with it and your supporting material is displaying correctly, you’ll need client sign-off.

Add your client’s email address. They’ll be able to sign-off online.

When your client has signed off, you’ll receive a notification and be prompted to pay for your entry or entries.

Your entry is only complete after payment.


That’s how the DMA Awards entry process is structured.
