The Agency Showcase is a spirited competition spotlighting bright ideas exhibited by park, recreation and conservation agencies. This professionally judged competition recognizes Illinois agencies for their marketing and communication efforts ranging from print to multimedia.
This year, the showcase includes two divisions and 12 categories in which to enter. Agencies may choose to enter either the Individual Categories or overall Agency Showcase division. Also, you will receive a ballot at check in for the People’s Choice Award, to vote for your favorite agency’s display.
Division 1: Agency Showcase
This division allows you to select eight out of the twelve categories and create a tabletop display for the judges to critique at the annual conference in January. The display should showcase how each entry works together to represent the agency. The eight categories that you select also will be placed and judged in the individual category division. There will be a first-, second- and third-place overall showcase winner for this division.
Division 2: Individual Categories
This division allows you to select up to four categories to enter your work for the judges to critique at the annual conference in January. There will be one outstanding submission recognized in each category.
Please remember, this is a professional exhibition of your work. Each specific category has a set of guidelines that can be found in this packet. In addition, there are overall guidelines for all entries. We look forward to seeing your work displayed at conference.
