How many organizations will be selected to participate?
We are limiting the organizations that have an assigned marketing team to 4 nonprofits. There will be more spaces available for the workshops, final presentations and after party.

When will I find out if we are selected to participate?
We will notify you 7days after the final application deadline which is 9/21/15.

What are you looking for in an ideal participant?
Ideally, we’ll be able to work with you to establish clear needs and goals. An enthusiastic, adventurous spirit is helpful, along with the desire and energy to explore new strategies.

Why do you need to know if we’re part of a national/international organization?
We need to know if there is an established campaign and image to consider.

What if I don’t know who our target audience is?
No worries just let us know. We may be able to help you with that!

What if I don’t know what our objectives are for this campaign?
Just let us know and we’ll see if we can help. You should also attend our marketing workshops.

If we don’t have something you’re asking for (e.g., photo library, media contacts, etc.) will that exclude us from the competition?
No. That just means that establishing these might be a priority for your campaign.

What if we have a past legal infraction, but don’t tell you about it?
You might end up with a campaign that doesn’t really suit your needs. Your honesty helps us create the most appropriate strategy for your organization.

What do you mean by “Are there any legal requirements that must be included in your ads?”
You may have grantors or sponsors who require mention in your ads. You could also have a national brand that needs to be present.

Why do you need to know who our Board Members are?
Your Board Members and their affiliates may be beneficial to your marketing campaign. We don’t want to leave any stone unturned.
