Winners are selected by a panel of industry experts who carefully judge each entry on home page/catalog cover, copy, design and production, merchandising, customer service and ordering, and site navigation/usability. The winning catalogs will be featured in the September 2010 issue of Multichannel Merchant.
The deadline for entries has been extended to Feb. 1. The fee is $295 per individual entry, except for residents of exempt states – please see the official rules.
New this year: There is a limit to the number of entries. Merchant companies cannot enter more than four catalogs, and no more than one per category, whether the submission is by the merchant or a supplier. The same issue of a catalog cannot be entered in more than one category (For example, the July 2009 edition cannot be entered both in Children’s Products and Apparel, Sales Over $20 million).
Merchant companies can only enter a URL in one category, and no more than four URLs, and no more than one per category, whether the submission is by the merchant or a supplier. Companies with one distinct brand can enter no more than four titles, but companies with several distinct brands can enter up to four entries for each distinct brand.
