ABABP, Financial Marketing Awards: Fifty-One Entries Honored


Fifty-one entries from banks and advertising agencies have been honored by the 2009 ABA Financial Marketing Awards. The awards were presented in September during the ABA Marketing Conference in San Antonio.

The competition, which is hosted by the ABA Marketing Network, recognized outstanding bank marketing creative work in six categories: annual reports (for 2008 and 2009); branding; financial education; humor; impact; and customer acquisition and retention.

More than 380 entries were received for this year's contest. Awards were presented in four bank asset categories, including: banks with assets of less than $500 million; assets of $500 million to $1 billion; assets of $1 billion to $5 billion; and assets of over $5 billion.

A panel of judges evaluated the entries, which had (with the exception of annual reports) mostly been published or broadcast during 2008.

Below are the winning entries by category. The Spotlight Award is given to an entry that deserved recognition but did not actually win a prize. The Marketers' Choice Award is the most outstanding entry based on the votes of ABA Marketing Network members themselves.

Images of all the winning entries will be published in the "Idea Bank" section of future issues of ABA Bank Marketing magazine.
