Hi,

Just wondering if anyone has won a category before and if so, what happens after they announce the winners if you did win?

Yes, I haven't received any info from them after placing a few times and wondered if this was normal or what to expect from those who had placed in the past.

They cash your check, and they hope you enter again next year.

That's what I figured, but I thought I had remembered them saying this year they had $16K in prizes. I never expect anything out of these contests, but it would be great to see them follow through with their marketing promises. Still happy to place though.

I'm more curious, than anything.

Hi
We have been in before no 2 & 3. What happens I don't know? I hope they send it out to all the creatives. Well done BTW! Still to me the best contests to enter are Communication Arts & American Photography, both are photo annuals & have been going for quite a few decades now in the US market. What I like about these two annuals is that there are no winners, if you get in that is enough plus they both publish books which do get onto Ad agency creatives shelves which could turn into a call for a job.
Cheers Denis

CA's definitely the big one, never heard about American Photography, so thanks for that one!

I entered for first time in that 4th Annual, i got nominee for first time, not looking to do again until i will be much better and good enough to win again or nominated for sure, no point to submit now again for the 5th and not get anything, means i didn't improve and didn't learn from my previous.
