What is Best of NAMA?
The Best of NAMA awards program honors the best work in agricultural communications. Actually, the best of the best, since companies and agencies must first qualify through regional competition in order to advance to the national level. The national awards ceremony will take place April 6, 2022 at the Sheraton Crown Center in Kansas City.
Best of NAMA operates on a regional judging format. Entries are sent directly to the national NAMA office and judged by industry professionals at a regional level for possible advancement to national competition. A minimum point standard will be used and enforced at the regional level. Work that is not above a certain point standard will not be eligible to be advanced. If you place first or merit at the regional competition and score above the minimum point standard, you are eligible to advance to the national competition. The NAMA office will notify you by February 1, 2022, regarding entries eligible for advancement. An entry fee at both the regional and national level is required. If your entry advances to national it will not be necessary to create another entry.
