Here's a chance for your magazine to show off its creative flair — by designing a house ad for a chance to win a plaque and $1,000 in services from circulation auditor BPA Worldwide (CCAB in Canada) in the 4th annual BPA House Ad competition.

"The house ad competition provides a unique chance to show off your marketing team's creativity and hard work within a fun and competitive forum," noted BPA. "Imagine putting your best house ads up against those from media owners around the globe!"

The ads are meant to run in the submitting publisher's magazine, but the ad doesn't have to be created by an in-house designer.

Submissions should focus on membership in BPA Worldwide, specifically "the value of your circulation/distribution and/or the benefit of your audit membership for the media buyer."
Ads and promotional pieces can be submitted until Sept. 30. The Grand Prize house ad will be announced in October.

All submissions will be featured "prominently" on the BPA website. The contest is free and open to BPA members and applicants, with no limit on number of submissions, which must be hi-res files in either PDF, GIF or JPEG formats.
