November 28, 2011

The build-up to the Hollis Sponsorship Awards 2012 is underway.  And this year we have expanded the number of categories companies can compete for.

“The Hollis Sponsorship Awards have stood the test of time – and come to be recognised as the Oscars of the industry, advice ” said organiser Rosemary Sarginson.  “But there have been many changes in the profile of the sponsorship sector and we want to reflect that.  We’re anticipating that this will trigger a wave of new entrants, viagra ensuring that we recognise the very best in our business.”

The Awards recognise excellence and effectiveness across every sector no matter what the budget.  Winning a Hollis Sponsorship Awards is a ringing endorsement of a campaign conducted to the highest specification – a stamp of approval from the industry and a fantastic pat on the back to all the members of the team.

Sports sponsorship campaigns can enter a number of categories but there are two categories specifically devoted to the sector – Sports Sponsorship supported by Sport England and UK Sport and Grass Roots Sport Sponsorship supported by Sport & Recreation Alliance.

This is your opportunity to demonstrate just how effective a sports sponsorship campaign can be in achieving both the client and the rights holder’s objectives – whether those might be introducing the sport and hence the sponsor to new audiences, allowing the client to become more involved in the community, enabling the workforce to contribute to the community, selling product, increasing visibility, changing brand focus, increasing inclusion in the sport or recreation, etc.  It can be a stand-alone campaign or one element of a much larger sponsorship.

You can start preparing your entry now and have until mid December to enter on the Early Bird rate and until mid January for the Final Deadline. The shortlisted and winning entries will be celebrated at our Gala Dinner on March 27th 2012 at The London Marriott Hotel Grosvenor Square.
