When do the entries have to be produced?

Between October 1, 2018 and November 30, 2019

I have multiple people from different departments submitting entries from around the university, is there just one password per university?

No. Individuals can submit using their own email and password for their institution, so long as that individual is a member of CUPRAP. Please indicate on your entry which school you are representing. All entries submitted by non-members will be disqualified.

Is there early bird pricing?

No, it’s the same price per entry from the opening of the contest to the end.

Can agencies submit awards on behalf of a client?

Yes, but please coordinate with the client. There have been instances where we have received awards for the same video, printed piece, etc. by the agency and the institution.

Can agencies submit awards on behalf of a non-CUPRAP member client?

No. However, if the agency or institution wants to take out a CUPRAP membership, they would then be eligible to submit awards.

Do I pay first?

No.  First, enter the CUPPIES at this link https://cuprap.awardsplatform.com. Once you upload your entries and submit you will receive a separate email invoice for each entry. Total all your entries, multiply by $40 and click on this CUPRAP payment portal to pay with your credit card.

When are the awards announced?

Letters go out to all CUPPIES winners in mid to late January.

Do I have to be at the Awards Banquet to receive the award?

No. We will mail the award to you … but what fun is that?

If I am unable to attend the entire conference, am I able to attend just the Awards Banquet?

Yes. Please check the CUPRAP website, or keep an eye out for Spring Conference registration materials, which will include a special rate just for the Awards Banquet.

Can I accept an award on someone’s behalf?

Yes. CUPPIE committee members will reach out to all winners once they are confirmed, usually in late January or early February, and will ask for the name of the person accepting. If this changes between then and the Awards Ceremony on March 5, please reach out to a committee member as soon as possible to alert him/her to the change.

If I nor anyone else from my institution can attend the dinner or pick up my award, will you mail it to me?

Yes but this year those who do not pick up their awards will be billed for postage and handling. Mailing several awards involves considerable postage costs that CUPRAP can no longer subsidize.
