We received a number of requests from travel brands that want to enter but can not make the deadline because of summer/winter holidays. We hear you and decided to do the right thing by extending the submission period another two weeks.
The new deadline to submit entries to Skifties 2015 — sponsored by American Express— is Tuesday, July 14, 2015 at 11:59 PM Eastern Standard Time. As far as the important dates, here is the updated timeline:
Judging will take place over the course of six weeks. Winners will be notified and announced on August 31, instead of first week of August. Awards will be presented to winners at the Skifties Awards Night on Tuesday, October 13th.
We’re looking to recognize impactful work that took place between May 1, 2014 and April 30, 2015. To us data, content, and context are key criteria for winning.
We urge those of you who intended to make the original deadline to maintain your pace. Treat this extension as a reward to refine your submissions. We wish you all the best of luck!
