We are excited to kick off the third year of The Stackies, which culminate in an opening awards ceremony at the MarTech Conference in San Francisco, May 9-11, 2017.

Of course, like all agile marketers, we believe in improving with each iteration. We've tweaked and expanded the competition this year to include the launch of our inaugural essay contest, The Hackies. This site will allow you to set up your profile and submit your entries for both Stackies and Hackies.


The Stackies are a friendly competition where marketers send in a single 16:9 slide that illustrates their marketing stack — the collection of marketing tools and technologies that they use to make marketing magic in a digital world. View last years winners!

Meanwhile, The Hackies are a way for you to share your thoughts and to teach readers an important concept or insight at the intersection of marketing, technology, and management. You'll submit a 600-1,200 word essay and we'll publish all qualified entries on chiefmartec.com, MarTech San Francisco event site and MarTech Today. Winners will be chosen by the community through "votes" via social shares.


For every entry received, $100 will be donated to Girls Who Code, up to $10,000. No cash prizes will be given to finalists/winners. In addition, all entrants will automatically receive a special discount code for the purchase of an All-Access pass to the 2017 MarTech Conference in San Francisco.

All entries must be received by 3/31/17, Midnight Pacific time!

So what are you waiting for? To submit your entry, start by signing up for an account and then send us your submission! You'll first create a profile with your basic information and then you'll be able to submit your Stackie and/or Hackie entry.
