World Mail Awards

World Mail Awards

Most industries hold annual events to celebrate the significant accomplishments of outstanding performers. The celebration provides recognition of a job well done, and serves as an encouraging example for others to follow. The mailing industry also holds such an annual event, and the nomination period for 2014 opens on January 2, 2014.

The World Mail Awards (WMA) is an annual celebration of mailing organizations that have demonstrated impressive successes throughout a given year. Originally created in 2000 with only four categories, the WMA has expanded to 10 categories, including Corporate Social Responsibility, People Management, Customer Service, E-commerce, Innovation, Growth, Retail, Technology, Industry Leadership, and Security. Only one winner is selected for each category annually.

Any organization in the mailing industry is qualified to apply for the WMA, and a business can submit entries into more than one category if it so chooses. Third parties are also able to submit entries for another entity.

There is no cost for submitting an entry, but there is a fee for attending the awards ceremony should an organization make it to the final few in the winner selection process.

The US Postal Service has previously won several World Mail Awards in multiple categories including Customer Service in 2005, E-commerce in 2000, Innovation in 2000, 2001, and 2005, and Marketing in 2004 (category was discontinued in 2006).
