Compass Awards

Nowhere in our industry is there a more meaningful recognition of excellence in strategy, creativity, innovative solutions, and business results, than the TMSA Compass Award.

Submit now: Early Bird discount deadline is Jan. 26 - final deadline is Feb. 9, 2018 (now Feb. 16)

Due to high interest in entering (but the need for more time to prepare entries), TMSA has extended its deadline for submitting your entries. The new (and final) deadline is Feb. 16, 2018

Your entry will articulate the goals, strategy and implementation of your project and demonstrate how the results were measured against the goals. The entry will also include samples of your work, such as brochure layouts, websites, or ads; video files; news releases or other written documents; sample sales scripts; photography of trade show booths or events; or screen captures of CRM forms.

Are you eligible?

Members and non-members can enter work that took place in the past 12-18 months. Entrants include top management, strategists, practitioners, and tacticians.

The judging process

Compass entries are judged by industry peers, nationwide. All entries are evaluated using a proven six-point scaling system. 50 percent of your score will be based on the Program Blueprint; a written description of the project goals, strategic plan, tactics, and measurable results. The other 50 percent of your score will be based on the Program Work Samples. Point totals determine Awards of Excellence or Awards of Merit.
