With the joy of “world not ending” as declared & New Year, hitting in couple of days, it’s really exciting to announce the results of “Marketing Bloggers Article writing contest” December 2012.
We received 148 entries from 30 B-Schools, making the contest more successful than the previous one! It was high time for us to select the best among the best and at last the team has handpicked on 26 entries to the finals out of 148 submissions. Each article has been read and critically reviewed by our editorial team. Every article has been judged based on parameters – plagiarism, title, creativity, concept, presentation style & references but not limited to. The rejected submissions were either not adhered to the guidelines of the contest or were of poor quality.
