Why Kara loves The Communicator Awards:

The competition honors excellence and meaningful communication in all forms. It is an honor to guide entrants through the entry process clear through to the notifications.

Here are her top tips on entry best practices. We asked so you didn’t have to.


Early Entry Deadline

Take advantage of the best pricing of the season. Enter Now.

Your Work

Make sure everything is complete and all links are active prior to submission. This will ensure a smooth experience and will avoid hearing from us later if there is a problem!

Campaign Entries

I recommend that entrants set up and submit a non-branded landing page with project details, case study video, marketing results/stats, etc. along with a link(s) to the actual elements of the campaign.

Apps & Mobile

For subscription-based apps or sites, I recommend that you provide a guest login for our judges. It is helpful to provide our judges with the opportunity to fully experience the work.


Judging is based on the creative work itself, so the only information needed is entry title, entry elements for judging, category selections, client info (if applicable), contact information, and payment method.

Of course, if you have any questions or hesitations about entering please don’t hesitate to contact Kara via email at You probably have worked with her in the past, and if you are a new entrant, she can help guide you through the process so you feel at ease.
