2007 Scovies: Call for Entries!

“Winning the Grand Prize of the 2006 Scovie Awards has put my company (Ashburn Sauce Company) and myself into another league in the sauce world and has opened a lot more doors.” –Willard Ashburn, Ashburn Sauce Company

The Scovie Awards Competition continues to grow in size, with more than 650 products entered in 62 categories in 2006, including tasting and product marketing and advertising. This is your invitation to enter your products, ads, marketing materials and Web Sites in the 2007 Scovies. Launch your product into the future by promoting your product as a Scovie winner to buyers, distributors, retailers, and consumers! Entry deadline is September 15, 2006.

Here’s Why You Should Enter
It happens all the time: manufacturers suddenly begin to get inquiries and orders from buyers they’ve never heard of before. When they ask how the buyer found out about their products, often the reply is: “We saw that you were a Scovie winner on the Fiery-Foods & Barbecue Super Site.” There are so many products available these days that buyers look for unique reasons to favor one brand over another and being a Scovie winner provides a unique distinction that sets your product apart from the others. Even if you’ve won in past Scovie competitions, there are always benefits to winning again. It is great being a past winner, but being a current winner is better.
