In addition to the overall Hawaii Marketer of the Year category, categories include Non-Profit Marketing, E-Marketing, and Marketing of a New Product or Service.
Entries will be judged according to five criteria: insight, objectives, strategy, tactics and results. The competition is open to all Hawaii-based businesses, organizations or professionals. It is not limited to AMA members. In order to qualify, the major portion of an entry’s project work must have been implemented between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2010.
