2018 TAMI Award Submissions Are Now Open!
The TAMI Award submission deadline is 11:59 p.m. on March 18, 2018.
- Eligibility — Both TAMIO members and non-members are eligible to submit entries. Entries must be submitted by any city/county government/division, or any government support agency involved in providing local services (for example, transportation authorities, public utilities, and regional councils of government). Entries produced on or after January 1, 2016, are eligible for submission. Current TAMIO members are eligible for the member rate entry fees. Entries must be submitted electronically by 11:59 p.m. on March 18, 2018.
- Judging Process/Criteria — Judging will be conducted by non-member communications professionals and coordinated by TAMIO member volunteers throughout the state. Judges have the right to disqualify any entry that does not comply with guidelines, including submissions with unpaid entries. Judges reserve the right to reassign entries to other categories if they believe that this will result in a fairer evaluation. All judging comments will be emailed to applicants after the 2018 TAMIO Annual Conference. View sample judging sheets on the “Categories” page of this website.
- Finalist Notification — Finalists will be notified via email the week of May 15. Award entries will be divided into multiple divisions based on city population if sufficient entries are received in a specific category to warrant multiple awards.
- Awards Presentation — The TAMI Award winners will be announced Thursday, June 7, during a dinner at the 2018 TAMIO Annual Conference in Georgetown. Finalists will be asked to confirm their attendance at the dinner. Those not attending the TAMIO Annual Conference can purchase individual dinner tickets for the awards presentation. Award winners not able to attend the dinner or have a co-worker attend in their absence must arrange for shipping of the award at their expense.
