How to Submit a Winning Maroon & Gold Entry

Fill out your entry sheet—and SELL IT
With Green and Margo entries especially, tell the judges in your entry forms all the ways your minimized environmental impact, and maximized your resources. Be clear, be concise, and be honest—tell us why your entry should win.

Describe your website to a writer
Explain your entry on the form as you would to someone who doesn't do what you do. Our judges come from all areas of communications.

Organize your entry for display
If your campaign entry has many pieces, include a list of pieces and package them. If you'd like, include brief directions for how they should be displayed for judges.

Mark highlights in long entries
If you submit a book, a full-length video, or a complete website, mark or tell us where your favorite parts are so the judges can pay special attention.

Worth a thousand words
For the first time, the MIKE award is going fully digital. Entries will be submitted, reviewed, and voted for online. Be creative with your graphical representation of your entry.
