According to the Association of Marketing and Communications Professionals, which administers the award, approximately 6,500 entries worldwide competed for recognition in various categories.

The Platinum Award places Berkeley College in the highest category for marketing communications effectiveness. Competitive entries were submitted by renowned media organizations, public relations and advertising agencies, and the corporate marketing and communications departments of major firms and Fortune 50 companies.
