I received email notification yesterday of the upcoming deadline for Aster Award submissions. As you can see in the graphic above, the early deadline is February 28, 2013. The late deadline is March 15. The Aster Awards and the Healthcare Advertising Awards are the two big national healthcare competitions my firm enters each year. We also enter more general competitions like the Telly Awards and the Videographer Awards.
If you aren’t familiar with the Aster Awards, the competition is produced by the same group that publishes Marketing Healthcare Today magazine. They also produce the Cardiovascular Advertising Awards and the Cancer Awareness Advertising Awards. One of the things I really appreciate about the Asters is that the price for early submissions is only $45. That’s nearly half the price we pay to enter some of the regional healthcare marketing competitions. For more information, go to http://www.asterawards.com.
