Sample of Use
The goal of this category is to recognize only the
creative execution of individual components of an advertising
entry (illustration, photography, music, logo, etc.). Each entry in
this section MUST include a sample showing how the element
was actually used in the advertising message. For print entries,
a sample should be included in the entry envelope. When
submitting a logo, if the type of company is not evident or
obvious, it is recommended to include one or two words
explaining the type of business the logo represents.

     70B       Color
     70C       Digitally Enhanced
     Photographic images whose content has been digitally altered
     to create a new image (often one not possible using
     traditional photo techniques). Utilitarian photo retouching,
     color correcting or photo editing alone does not qualify an
     image for this category. A sample of the original photo and
     the digitally enhanced photo MUST be supplied for proper
     70D      Campaign (2-4 of the above).

Elements of Advertising
Much confusion, much discussion about
entries by photographer or agency.

In Elements of Advertising, entries may only be entered in
the CBSA, DMA or MSA in which it was created. (Deleted
– not by the agency using the element.)

The entrant’s address will determine into which local show
the work is entered.
