2021 ambits extended entry

It’s Time to Submit for the 2021 AMBIT Awards

Join Kansas City’s best and brightest for another fabulous event to recognize the most creative, data-driven, ROI-achieving campaigns of the year. Submit your best campaigns for a chance to be in the spotlight. Submissions are officially open!

What Should I Enter?

The KCDMA AMBIT Awards focus on data-focused and results-driven marketing. Judging is equally weighed on three criteria: strategy, creative, and results. It’s the perfect balance of left brain thinking + right brain creativity. Last year’s entries ranged from hard-working direct mail campaigns to interactive mobile apps. Remember, if your campaign fits into multiple categories, you can submit it in more than one, as long as you pay the designated entry fees for each category in which you submit. Any campaign that ran in 2020 (January-December) qualifies for entry.
