Hermes Creative Awards Deadline Update

Deadline Today
$95 per entry | $175 per campaign

To Our Valued Entrants,

Today is the early deadline to submit entries for the 2020 Hermes Creative Awards. We recognized many of you have been displaced from your offices and this might not be the best time to submit your entries. We will be announcing a deadline extension date hopefully as soon as next week.

Hermes Creative Awards is different from other competitions in that we don’t make you wait months for your results. This year will be no exception. Judges have been working full-time for several weeks evaluating the many entries that have already been submitted.

If you enter by today, your results will be posted within two to three weeks. Otherwise, entries will be judged in the order they are submitted, and results will be released periodically thereafter.

We have limited staff in the office, but others are backed up and working remotely. Together we can answer any and all of your questions or help with your entries. Please don’t hesitate to call us at 214-377-3525, email us at or contact us through LiveChat on the lower right-hand corner of the home page or entry system.

Our hearts go out to all those impacted by the pandemic. We look forward to seeing your great work.

Okay, old adages confuse me.

New ones too!

But, here’s the message of this newsletter: finish off your thoughts when you are trying to induce specific behavior in someone.

So many of the CEOs and managers I work with complain that they don’t feel they should have to exactly “spell it out for them.” I say they do (and you do as well) if the goal is more success influencing the actions of others.

“They” ( you know..”them”)can never be really sure of what you want of them, unless you go to the trouble of telling them.

Let’s go through several communication scenarios and see the difference in going some of the way, going most of the way and then actually finishing off each episode.
