2023 Prism Awards
We are looking forward to another year celebrating the wonderful marketing efforts from Nebraska based talent.

If you have additional details to include, a new award script, or different collateral you'd like to submit you can enter a new form each time. When entering across multiple categories simply check all the category boxes to which your entry apples. TIP: Look at the questions we are asking for entries and write up your answer in a separate document for easy copy and paste (and saving for your records!)

This script will be read at the Prisms Award Ceremony if your entry is selected, so be creative! (Limit 350 characters, including spaces.) If you are submitting a video for any category above you have the option of leaving this blank and including text in a video to be shown instead of reading. NOTE: You will have a 30 second spot, be concise. Consider varying your scripts if you have multiple categories entered for the same project. If you choose to use the same script, we will read it the first time and paraphrase for subsequent wins. If you don't provide a shortened file or script, we will cut your submitted video at 30 seconds. Full length videos will be available on the website to highlight winners in the weeks following the award ceremony.
Prism Judging Questions
Answer the following questions. For more information read the Judging Criteria below.
***All entries submitted are judged by AMA Chapter Leaders not directly associated with the Lincoln chapter or its sponsors to ensure unbiased results. Judges will be aware of your company name. The number of points received determines Prism and Sterling winners. Each submission is judged by two judges on a points scale of 1-85. To secure a Prism win, the submission must receive a score higher than 65. To secure a Sterling win, the submission must receive a score higher than 55. Entries must receive a minimum number of points to qualify for a Prism award. Therefore, some categories may have a Sterling award winner and not a Prism award winner. There is one Prism Award winner and one Sterling Award winner per category/division.***
What was the core, basic problem the entry needed to solve or address? What was/were the objective(s) to address the situation or challenge? This should be a specific, quantifiable statement. Judges will score on how clearly the challenge is stated and whether the objectives are sound, clear and measurable. (2000 characters or less.)
Describe the strategic process behind this project/initiative and what tactics or actions were taken to achieve the objectives. Judges will score how well the strategy and tactics relate to achieving the objectives. (2000 characters or less.)
What measurable results did this entry achieve? Did it achieve the entry’s objectives? It’s extremely important to describe the results in measurable terms to demonstrate the entry’s objectives were achieved. Judges will score on how effective the entry was in producing results that directly tie into the objective(s). (2000 characters or less.)
