MAME Entry Rollover for The Nationals

We are pleased to offer a special entry rollover program. Here’s how it works. You have already entered materials, The Awards Committee will provide your entry materials to the The Nationals for you! If you would like to resubmit those materials for either program, all that is needed is for you to mark the boxes on the entry application for Nationals. You will be invoiced separately for entry fees for each program. No additional forms or materials needed!! Simply mark your form and you are all set, we’ll take care of the rest!

Eligible Entries

  • Product must be built or marketed September 1, 2022 and August 30, 2023
  • Home Builders or Associate Members (advertising agency, architect, supplier, interior designer, developer) may enter.
  • Only HBA builders and associate members in good standing are eligible to receive recognition.
  • Repeat Entries: Remember, if your work is still being marketed as of September 1, 2021, you can enter that work even if it has already been entered in previous years, even if you won for that category. This applies to any category.
