Effectiveness & Impact: Overall effectiveness of the campaign - did it achieve the desired objectives and results (be specific)? What social impact was made as a result of this effort?

*Starting this year, entries will be organized based on their entry type (B2B, B2C, Non-profit, or Healthcare) to ensure that similar entries are judged against each other, providing jurors an apples-to-apples judging experience and providing a level of playing field for all entries and entrants.
