Recognizing Excellence in Government IT Marketing

In 2014, GovMark Council is all about providing you with a voice. So this year we're changing up the annual GovMark Awards Program – and we want to hear from you. Rather than a selection committee, you will choose the 2014 GovMark Awards winners. And, since this program's theme is digital marketing, we're taking your nominations to the cloud – you will vote online to determine the results. Who better to judge your campaign successes than your industry peers?

But, before you can accept your award, you must first submit your nomination. Did the team develop a unique marketing campaign? Did a specific individual demonstrate leadership and innovation? If so, nominate your organization or a colleague for a GovMark Award. To submit a nomination, click here to download the nomination form and email it to agallucci@govmarkcouncil.org.

Open to industry and government organizations, the ninth annual GovMark Awards will honor successful government technology marketing programs and individuals in the following categories:

  • Best Overall Marketing Program
  • Best Awareness/Educational Program
  • Best Digital Program (Campaign Including Online and Social Media Elements)
  • Best Event Program
  • Best Lead Generation Program
  • GovMark All-Star – Outstanding Public Sector IT Marketer (Individual Award)
