Exciting Changes For Best Of NAMA

Written by NAMA on Tuesday, May 29, 2012 , 9:45 am

This year it will be easier to enter and judge Best of NAMA.    NAMA is setting up a special web site that will allow members to upload entries including radio, TV, broadcast news, blogs, internet web sites and banners. This same site will allow for streamlined judging at the regional and national levels.  Other categories such as print ads, collateral, etc. will still be entered via hard copy submission. Watch for complete details in the call for entries, which will come out late summer. 

The 2012 deadline for Best of NAMA entries will be October 12 with Regional judging set for November 6-7.

Thanks to Paulsen Marketing for coordinating the new Best of NAMA Entry Site.

The Iowa NAMA May Meeting was held on the 18th at the Iowa FFA Enrichment Center.  With a great turnout, the panel of Kristi Moss, Paulsen Marketing; Terry Reilly, Iowa Farmer Today; and Dave Mowitz, Successful Farming, were able to interact with the audience and answer questions concerning digital media, how press releases are received and how media is evolving.

Take homes included:  how people interact can be dictated by cell phone contracts, texting, unlimited data plans being a thing of the past…Press releases are being sent digitally and it’s important to please have all content included when the release is sent.  Don’t forget the contact information,  either.
