IMPORTANTIf you are nominating someone who you believe deserves this honor, you are encouraged and required to give details in all eight of the areas listed above. Do not assume the judges already know the information that you are supplying.

We have seen quality nominees turned away because nominators just wrote a paragraph (or copied and pasted a LinkedIn profile) rather than spending time on the entry. For added simplicity and clarity, submit eight sections corresponding to the eight criteria.

The Selection Committee is chosen by The New Jersey Advertising Club to evaluate and determine the nominees who will be admitted to The Advertising Hall of Fame of New Jersey. Decisions of the committee will be final.

Nominations must be received no later than September 4, 2019.

Sponsorships will be accepted to support the new Hall of Fame inductees. Click here to learn more or call Pat Hanley at 201-998-5133.
