The initial deadline for the 9th annual Internet Advertising Competition Awards has passed and we have once again received a record number of entries that will vie for top honors.

The deadline to enter new entries or edit existing entries has been extended until Friday, February 11th. The following Monday, February 14th the judges will begin the adjudication process. Multiple expert judges will review each entry independently and assigning it a score between 7 and 70 points. We'll take an average of the top two scores to determine the entry's final score.. The entry with the highest score in the category wins Best of Industry - no need to worry about judges being influenced by "big brand names" only great online advertising!

Winners of the Best of Industry IAC Award will receive our new crystal trophy which is sure to turn some heads. Each format will also receive an even bigger crystal trophy to commemorate their success.

The agency that is awarded the most awards in the competition will be named Top Agency of 2011 and receive an impressive crystal trophy to go with all of their other awards.

So here is your last chance to either enter your best banner ads, email ads, rich media, online newsletters, online video, mobile and online apps, websites and social media campaigns in 86 industry categories at www.IACAward.org.
