This year’s competition is open to events taking place between Sept. 1, 2005, and Aug. 31, 2006. Nominees will be notified by mid-November, and the winners will be named in January at The Special Event 2007 in Los Angeles.
Entries are $75 each if received by Sept. 8. In a first this year, we've added a late-delivery option--entries are $100 each if received by Sept. 15.
The Gala Awards have been given by Special Events Magazine since 1986, when the awards honored the "top 10 events of 1985." The awards recognize the finest work in special events worldwide.
