Due to ‘overwhelming demand,’ the Australasian Catalogue Association (ACA) has extended the deadline for the 26th Catalogue Awards and entries are now open until next Friday, 9th June.

“This year we have seen some great work submitted and it is terrific to see new companies joining the program and showing, once again, how strong our industry is,” says Kellie Northwood, CEO, ACA. “The introduction of a new category for the awards – Direct Mail – has also shown its strength to our retail community.”

This year’s event features a record 50 different categories.

The entries give a chance from small to big retailers to showcase their best work. The ACA recommends that entrants provide the judges with a short, succinct paragraph on how effective the catalogue was. Catalogues must have been created in Australia or New Zealand, however, distribution in other parts of the world is also accepted. Further, for the second year, the Awards have several New Zealand only categories which include Fashion, Home, Cosmetics & Pharmacy, Recreation and Leisure, B2C and Retailers.

Award entries close 5pm, Friday, 9th June. Judging in Melbourne will take place from 13-16th June, Auckland 16th June and in Sydney from 20-23th June.

The awards night will be held at the Melbourne Exhibition and Convention Centre (MCEC) on Friday, 25th August 2017, with Libbi Gorr as Master of Ceremonies.

“The Catalogue Awards recognise the hard work that is done behind the scenes every day,” says Northwood. “It is a night when the industry celebrates together the innovation, diversity, creativity and success.”
