We explain how it will all work this year as we continue to celebrate channel sales and marketing success
An important message from CRN about the eagerly awaited Channel Awards 2020
Some handy hints and tips to help you create that winning entry
For this year ONLY, the SMAs will be celebrated in living rooms and offices around the country rather than as a face-to-face event. We explain how it will work below
Please submit your entries for the SMAs by 5pm on Friday 17 April

The deadline has moved to Wednesday 8 April and the event itself will take place on Thursday 17 September
Because we are asked the same questions each year, we thought it would be good to hear from the judges on what they are looking for in an entry and what will score extra points. They also share what makes them turn off and mark down as well
