Payment is the final step in the submission process. Entries must be paid in full before the deadline to be eligible for evaluation via:
- Credit card in the online system. Checks are not accepted.
- Wire transfer, to be requested from IABC, if your organization does not allow credit card payments.
Payment must be received by 8 February 2021. Once the wire transfer has been received and confirmed, the entrant will receive a payment code to complete the entry.
