LEARN MORE ABOUT MARKETPLACE

The Shop! Global Awards recognize excellence in point-of-purchase advertising display, marketing-at-retail activations and retail design. This competition welcomes gold award-winning projects from individual Shop! Affiliates’ own industry awards around the world to celebrate international best in class.

HOW IT WORKS

Shop! POPAI Countries from around the world are able to invite all gold award winners from their local industry award program to enter the Shop! Global Awards 2024. The entries will be judged by a distinguished panel of Global industry professionals!
Open for entries: Nov. 1, 2023
DEADLINE: 11:59 p.m. EST, Feb. 15, 2024

WHO CAN ENTER

All gold winners from a Shop! POPAI country award program.

AWARDS WINNER RECOGNITION

The Shop! Global Awards winners will be announced in an awards ceremony at Shop! MarketPlace in Cincinnati, OH, on April 10, 2024 and will appear in an exclusive online gallery hosted on shopawards.org that will be distributed to Shop’s U.S. and global networks via email.

Student Design Award

The nine international Shop! chapters that host a student award competition locally may each submit one gold winner to enter the Global Awards’ Student Design Award category. Each international Shop! chapter will volunteer one person to be on the panel of judges for this award. Only one Student Design Award will be presented.

FAQs

Q. What is the maximum number of entries I can submit?
A. There is no limit to the number of entries, as long as each entry submitted won a gold award in your own local market or the U.S. Shop! OMA Awards in 2023. However, each entry can be submitted only once. If two companies submit the same entry, Shop! will reach out to the entrants and decide which entry will stay in the competition.

Q. Do I have to complete all entry criteria for it to be eligible for the competition?
A. Yes. Despite having already won gold in your local market, each entry will be judged again by a different panel, and so it is therefore critical that you complete all entry requirements. Otherwise, the judges will not be able to fully assess the merit of the display.

Q. Can I submit the actual display as part of my entry?
A. No. Only photographs and video clips are accepted in support of entries.

Q. How many photographs can I submit for each entry?
A. Eight. The minimum number of photographs required is three. It is essential to use photographs of the display in-store. Photos must be 350 dpi and a minimum of 4 x 6 inches in size. Two video clips are also acceptable. Video clips can be no longer than 30 seconds and cannot include sound. Videos should be MP4 or WAV files.

Q. When are the trophies available?
A. Trophies are all shipped directly to the winners six to eight weeks following Shop! Market Place.

Q. How many trophies are presented?
A. One per winning entry.

Q. How do I order additional trophies?
A. You can order duplicate trophies AFTER you have received your trophies. Duplicate trophies cost $250 plus shipping and can be ordered directly from the trophy supplier’s website: societyawards.com/shopassociation.

Q. Can I see my score?
A. Shop! does not make individual scores available.

Q. What if I have more questions?
