Createasphere has announced the opening of the Call For Entries for the Third Annual DAMMY Awards. The DAMMY Awards are the first honors specifically conceived to recognize excellence in innovative digital asset management technology. In the two years since their launch, the DAMMY Awards have become the standard for excellence in the industry, sought after by a wide variety of companies and individuals at work in asset management. The written submission period is April 2, 2012 – August 2, 2012. The DAMMY Awards will take place on September 28, 2012 at the New Yorker Hotel in New York at a gala luncheon ceremony.
The DAMMY Award winners are chosen by a blue-ribbon panel of judges who review the written entries. The submissions process is a rare, non-marketing opportunity for entrants to articulate their process, work, and excellence in a concise document for the Judge’s panel. After the submission period ends, and judging has been completed, an abstract of entries will be published prior to the Awards gala in September.
Mary Yurkovic, Manager of the Createasphere Digital Asset Management Conferences comments, “We are proud of the growth of The DAMMY Awards. From the very first year, they have been embraced by the industry and have attracted an incredible caliber of entries from a wide variety of companies, organizations and institutions. We’ve been able to recognize excellence and draw attention to the amazing innovation and thoughtful evolution in the industry and that is meaningful as the discipline moves forward. We are all looking forward to reading the submissions this year, and sharing a bounty of insights with the Createasphere audience.”
