Many entries are broken into 4 awards: Builder, Remodeler, Realtor, and Associate. This is determined by the type of business you are, rather than who you designed the materials for. For example, if you are a Realtor and you designed an ad, website or brochure for a Builder client, your entry will still be competing for the Realtor award in those entries.

Entries must have been designed by, or for, the company submitting.

Entries must have been designed or in use during the previous calendar year.

Items submitted for previous MAME award’s may be entered, provided they were in use during the previous calendar year and the entry reflects the materials/entry as used during the previous calendar year.

Entries must relate to the homebuilding industry and its products. For example, an Associate ad or brochure promoting a product or service used by builders would be eligible. An ad designed by an ad agency to sell bridal gowns would not be eligible. An ad, brochure, website, etc. promoting the Associate Member would be eligible in the appropriate categories.
