It’s time to boast about your excellent work! Entries for the 2023 MACE Excellence Awards – which will take place during a gala dinner at the MACE Annual Conference in November – are now open. And to get you even more excited: thanks to requests from many members, the venue for this year’s Conference will be at the coast! The University of the Western Cape will host us on 15 and 16 November.
The MACE Excellence Awards recognise and celebrate excellence and the achievements of specialists and practitioners in marketing, communication, and advancement in the higher education sector. The Excellence Awards are only open to paid-up MACE members, and each member institution nominates as many of their best projects/ campaigns as they want to, after which entries are evaluated by our panel of expert evaluators comprising senior marketing, advancement, and communication professionals hand-picked from tertiary institutions and commerce and industry.
Entries with points above the thresholds receive Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum Awards, with other prizes including the Chairperson’s Award of Excellence, MACE Award for Outstanding Research, and the Severus Cerff Award for Consistent Excellence.
This year’s entries must be implemented, published, or broadcast between March 2022 and 30 September 2023 to qualify for submission.
Entries are now open, and getting your entries in early saves you money: Pay R600 per entry until 7 August, R750 up to 4 September, and R980 before the final deadline of 9 October 2023.
