  • Single Entry is one piece of creative execution, i.e. brochure, commercial, outdoor, direct mailer, etc. If multiple implementations are submitted as single, priced as multi-part entries. 
  • Single Medium Campaigns consist of at least two separate executions in one medium.
  • Integrated/Mixed Media Campaigns consist of at least one execution in two or more media.

Campaigns must have been developed with a common theme. Multi-item submissions entered as single entries are either separated and considered single entries or reclassified as a campaign. You will be contacted if additional fees apply.
