The Society for Marketing Professional Services (SMPS) is accepting entries for its 2007 Marketing Communications Awards (MCA) competition. The MCA recognize excellence in marketing communications by professional services firms in the design and building industry. The deadline for submissions is April 6, 2007.

Open to both SMPS members and nonmembers, awards are given in 18 marketing communications categories-from brochures and direct-mail campaigns to websites and special events. There is no limit to the number of entries a firm can submit. Information about categories and submittal requirements and entry forms are available online at, or by sending an e-mail to, or calling SMPS at 800-292-7677, extension 231.

Award winners will be announced and honored on Aug. 23, 2007, at a multimedia, black-tie gala during Build Business: Politics at Work, the 2007 SMPS/PSMA National Conference, in Washington, D.C. Winning entries, including a Best of Show judged by industry editors, will be prominently displayed throughout the conference. Award winners will be publicized in press releases sent to national industry publications, in SMPS publications, and on the SMPS webssite.
