Ragan Communications Calls for Entries for its Employee Communications Awards 2012 Contest(November 01, 2012)
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) November 01, 2012
Lawrence Ragan Communications issued its first call for entries for its Employee Communications Awards 2012 contest. The contests Early Bird deadline is December 7. The final date entries may be posted is December 21.
The fee for entries submitted by December 7 is $175, going up to $225 for entries submitted between December 7 and December 21.
Mark Ragan, publisher of http://www.ragan.com, speaking about the 2011 Employee Communications Awards, said: Last year we didnt know what to expect. We had created 20 or so social media categories in which wed never offered prizes. And we were just staggered by our readers enthusiasm. We got more than 350 entries."
This year, weve slimmed down the number of categories a bit, mostly by combining categories. Weve tried to make it more immediately apparent to contestants what category affords them the best chance of making the final cut."
I think that this year, with a trimmer category structure, which we hope will attract more editors, writers and social media specialists, 400 to 500 entries is certainly not out of the question."
Last year, we drew some unbelievably imaginative print and electronic campaign entries. Anybody who says print is dead, or even dying, doesnt know what theyre talking about. We saw proof to the contrary last year.
