Can I enter the same work into multiple categories?
Yes — go for it! You can enter as many campaigns in as many categories as you wish. Teams often enter the same piece of work into multiple categories – though review the category descriptions closely, you may need to slightly modify your case story for each category you enter to ensure it’s a match for what a category is looking for.
My work won last year — can I enter it again?
Absolutely, yes! Any campaign entered in prior ECHO Awards may be entered again with updated strategy, creative or results.
“The ECHOs are an excellent confluence of data revealed in truthful experiences that are beautifully executed. I would be hard-pressed to find a different recognition that hits it so squarely. Right now, clients are eager to find evidence that these sorts of investments really drive value and have performance behind them. The way that the ECHOs organize the categories and judge the work, I don’t think they have ever been more relevant.”
— Troy Hitch, Chief Innovation Officer, Proximity Worldwide
