If there’s one marketing awards program where the entire industry wins, it’s The Stackies. Each year, dozens of organizations enter a 16×9 slide that visualizes their “marketing stack” — the collection of martech software they use — and how they think about its structure. We then publish them all, ungated, for everyone in marketing to learn from these examples.
Over the years, this has resulted in a collection of hundreds of marketing stacks — see stacks from 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019 — that have helped tens of thousands of marketers better understand marketing technology systems.
In addition to helping the marketing community, participants in The Stackies:
- Discover the scope and structure of their marketing stack
- Create a great slide to explain their stack to stakeholders
- Reward their martech vendors with recognition in their stack
- Attract marketing talent to work with their stack
- Promote their brand across the marketing industry
- Raise money for charity (we donate $100 to Girls Who Code for each stack)
Now, here’s your opportunity to join in The Stackies to launch the next decade…
The Stackies 2020: Marketing Stack Awards are open for entries.
To participate, create a 16:9 slide that illustrates the way you conceptualize your marketing stack — the different tools you use, but more importantly, how you think about the way they fit together.
It doesn’t have to be a fancy work of art (even though some entries are). Simply sharing the composition and basic organization of your stack is an immensely valuable contribution to the community. We all learn from the collective patterns that emerge.
You can create your slide in PowerPoint, Google Slides, or any other program. Just export the final slide as a 1600×900 pixel JPG, PNG, or GIF image or a 16:9 PDF.
Upload your slide here before midnight PST on Friday, March 20, 2020.
There’s no cost to enter. In fact, for every qualified entry (e.g., a meaningful stack slide), we will donate $100 to Girls Who Code, up to total of $10,000.
We’ll publish the deck of all stacks and host a celebratory awards ceremony at the opening reception of the MarTech conference in San Jose on April 15. Five entries that our judges deem as particularly “outstanding” will be awarded trophies.
But again, just by entering, you help everyone in marketing win.
Bonus Opportunity for Early Submissions
These stack slides are a such a great way for marketers to learn-by-example about different martech implementations in the real world. We’d love to shine a light on more of them.
