Q. Why do I have to register before I can enter?
A. Registering creates an account for you to use throughout the competition. You can use this account to submit entries, check on the status of entries, order your awards or update your personal information at anytime. Not registered yet? Click here to get started.


Q. In what category should I enter my piece?
A. Please enter in to the category or categories that you feel are most appropriate for your piece. Often there is more than one category that fits each entry and many pieces are entered in to more than one category. See Our Full List of Categories


Q. What if I can’t find a category that fits my piece?
A. All work is different. If you don’t think there is a specific category suitable for your entry, please enter your work in to the ‘Other’ category. If our judges feel that your entry is more appropriate for a specific category, they will move the entry to the suitable category. We are always looking to refine and update our judging categories, so if there is a category you would like to see, please email us a suggestion at info@daveyawards.com.


Q. How many winners are there per category?
A. There may be several winners in a certain category or there may be none. Winners are chosen based on the content of their piece; there are not a set number of winners per category. Judges evaluate entries to recognize distinction in creative work – entries do not compete against each other-rather entries are judged against a high standard of merit.


Q. Can I enter the same piece in several different categories?
A. Many of our entries are entered in to multiple categories. You may enter a piece in as many categories as are appropriate for each entry, and your entry will be judged separately for each category entered. Please note that the entry fee is due for each category entered.


Q. Who are the judges?
A. The Davey Awards is overseen and sanctioned by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts, an invitation-only body consisting of top-tier professionals from a “Who’s Who” of acclaimed media, communications, advertising, creative and marketing firms. AIVA members include executives from organizations such as Conde Nast, Disney, GE, Keller Crescent, Microsoft, Monster.com, MTV, Push., Publicis, Sesame Workshops, The Marketing Store, Worktank and Yahoo! and many more. View the full list.


Q. Can I get judges’ comments about my piece?
A. Currently, we do not release detailed commentary or individual judges scoring for entries. As the Davey Awards is a large contest with over 4,000 entries annually, there are simply too many entries to be able to do that for each entry.


Q. Where can I find a list of winners?
A. All winners are listed on our website. Best in Show and Gold winners are also featured in our Winners Gallery. Simply click here to view our winners page.


Q. How can I get duplicate award statuettes?
A. When entrants are notified that they have been chosen as winners, they will receive the appropriate forms to purchase their acceptance awards. Each winner is able to order as many duplicates as they would like for clients, team members or anyone else who participated in the creation of the winning piece. To be sure only Davey winners are able to receive trophies, only your company (the company that entered the winning piece) can order an award. If a client wishes to order duplicate awards they must either order through the entering company or get the appropriate entry number from the entering company. Please call us at (212) 675-3555 if you have any questions. Awards may be ordered at our online store .


Q. How long does it take to get my awards?
A. Each statuette is custom produced. We produce statuettes in the order that orders are received. Typically, statuettes will be shipped to you approximately six to eight weeks from the date that we receive your order. Certificates will be shipped to you in approximately four weeks as well but they are shipped separately from the awards.


Q. Can I change the information that I would like to appear on my statuettes and certificates?
A. You may have anything you would like engraved on your statuettes or printed on your certificates. For statuettes, you are limited to 4 lines with 26 characters per line including spaces.
