Recognizing The Best In Email

It’s my favorite time of the year! Everyone is energized for a fresh start, setting goals and committing to new and healthy habits. Additionally, it’s movie and TV awards season which means it’s also SPARKY AWARDS season! That’s right! We’re excited to announce the 2018 Sparky Awards! We’ll be taking submissions for 5 award categories from today until March 2, 2018!

These awards are a favorite of mine because they celebrate the best and brightest professionals who use email in some truly unique ways to engage with their customer bases and grow their businesses. From clever subject lines to crafty re-engagement campaigns to well constructed triggered event emails, the submissions we get each year just get better and better.

We’ve also revamped a few categories based on community feedback, brought in some fresh faces to the judging table and we’re ready to hear what you’ve been working on for the past year! Below you’ll find all the necessary info and more importantly, learn what the grand prize is!

The 2018 Sparky Awards Categories:

  • Best Triggered Email
  • Best Email Subject Line
  • Best Use of a SparkPost Product
  • Best Interactive Email (hint hint)
  • Best Product Email

For full descriptions of each category and ideas on what to submit, check out the official Sparky Awards page.

What’s In It For You

The winner of each award category will take home a physical Sparky Award along with fame, notoriety and a feature of their submission on our blog. From the winners pool, the judges will select one grand prize winner who will receive up to $1000 toward a conference of their choice!*

You Don’t Have to Do This Alone

If you’re not sure that anything you’ve worked on is Sparky Awards worthy – don’t worry! We’re here to help! Over the course of the next 6 weeks, we’ll be sharing examples on our blog of great product emails, interactive emails and triggered email campaigns to inspire your submissions and even remind you of the great work you probably did last year but forgot about.

So, are you ready? Enter here for a chance to win a 2018 Sparky Award, and follow along on Twitter (#SparkyAwards) to see what other email pros are doing.

We’re looking forward to another awesome year of submissions!
