What's New & Different for 2017

Eligibility Timeframe

  • Eligibility for the 2017 ABAs extends from January 1 2016 through March 15 2017, the last day that entries will be accepted.  Nominations should cite achievements during this eligibility window. Videos, publications, live events, and other media premiered since that date are eligible to be entered.  There is no eligibility timeframe for app and web site entries - it doesn't matter when apps and web sites were first published.

  • The number of words permitted in the briefs to be submitted with entries in the mobile website/app, publication, video, and website categories has been increased from 125 to 200.
