Media & Marketing open now..!

Got posters? A website? Maybe a jingle? Do you create eye-catching displays on your stalls to draw in customers, or use social media to get the word out?

Send them to us and you could win one of SIX cash prizes for your team!

In this XTRA competition, the judges are looking for the best examples of promoting and advertising your business, its products and services. All you have to do is send us the marketing material and tell us how you’ve used it to promote your business.

You'll be judged on four simple things:

  1. Message – A clear message about your business or what you’re selling
  2. Presentation – Well designed and attractive content
  3. Impact - Something that makes the judges sit up and pay attention
  4. Use - Have you used the materials in real life? Are they being used well?

For a list of ideas for materials, plus the full details of the rules and prizes, please download the Media & Marketing PDF below:

Extra support is also available on the help page.
