  • Connect with the shopper,
  • Convey information, and
  • Close the sale.

Judges scored entries on a scale of one to five for each attribute and chose 85 finalists, based on average point total, to move on to the second and final round, held on Oct. 16, at the Shopper Marketing Expo. Finalists were awarded bronze, silver, gold, platinum or Best of the Times status. Finalists with the top average score in each retail channel received platinum status, and the finalist with the highest score overall won "Best of the Times" for 2012.
