Golden Arrow Awards

The Golden Arrows recognize the best work of communications, public relations and marketing professionals, and student practitioners based in Maine.

The 2019 Golden Arrow Awards program will begin accepting entries on September 4, 2019

Get those case studies ready with your best work from the past year if you want your shot at Golden Arrow glory. Entries are completed online through the Judgify platform, and are judged on a 500-word project or campaign recap addressing situation analysis, objectives, strategies, tactics, execution and results/impact. If you are not registered on Judgify, please do so here at any time. And be sure to gather media results, videos, photos, social posts, client feedback and other supporting materials to enhance your entries for work created between July 31, 2018 and July 31, 2019. Best of luck as you go for the Gold!
