Thank you for completing your entry for the Regional Event Awards.

Once the entry period has closed and the entries have been judged, winners will be announced online and notified via email. The grand prizes will be awarded based on the top overall scorers in the entire competition. The prizes are:

$10,000 advertising campaign for 2018.
$5000 advertising campaign for 2018
$2500 advertising campaign for 2018.

These may be used to market and advertise events or event businesses via Canadian Special Events marketing vehicles. More details will be provided in the prize package sent to each winner. Prizes are to be used in accordance with Canadian Special Events Media Group advertising policies.

In addition, winners will receive a digital winners badge and be featured in the January Look Book issue of Canadian Special Events Magazine.

 The winners in each regional category will advance directly to compete in the national awards without having to enter. It is important to note that the regionals are a separate competition and it is not required that anyone enter the regionals to compete in the Nationals. Companies may choose to enter the regionals and or the nationals. If they do not win the regionals they may still go on and compete for a shot at the national title. 

The CEIA judging is a 4-stage process including prescreening to eliminate non-qualified entries, a first-round analysis to determine shortlists, an in-depth evaluation where the entry is critically examined in detail for its caliber and merit and then, a final judging to determine the winners. 

To win a CEIA, is an absolute true measure of excellence. If you have any questions, please email us to

Thank you and good luck.
