What's In It For Your Business?

Free entry in all sectors and categories

Small business owners, entrepreneurs, and even larger companies often dislike upfront entry fees, which can be anywhere from $99 to more than $200 per category. With USA Awards, you don't have to worry about these fees – all your entries are free

You only pay if you win an award

It just makes sense. Why pay an entry fee when you get nothing in return? If you enter an award sector with USA Awards and win, you pay an Award Acceptance Fee, then enjoy a raft of benefits for winning.

Professional Publicity Package Included

As a winner or finalist, you will get credible industry recognition and publicity from interviews, international press releases, Google and Yahoo! News features, content marketing and case studies.

Social Media Engagement & Promotion

Social media marketing is important for all businesses, which is why we announce and promote your accolades on social platforms, and regularly engage with you and your followers.
