Calkins Family Best Use of Video Award


This special award will recognize one entry - across all circulation divisions - that best uses video either for a single advertisement or as part of an ad campaign.

Judges will consider creativity, innovation and impact as well as how effectively the content reflects the value and purpose of the advertised product, company, service, event, etc. The video should demonstrate a compelling use of technology. Entry should include an explanation of the aim of the ad/campaign and the outcome (i.e. how was the video successful in increasing sales, visitors and reach for the advertiser). Excludes promotions of the newspaper, its company and its products.

Enter this special award category using the same submission process as outlined in the 2018 PNA Foundation Advertising Contest.
