Introducing Award Management Services from Brave Dog


Los Angeles – Former PromaxBDA Award competition runners Stephen McCarthy and Juan Carlos Castano announce the start up of their new company, Brave Dog (, a full service awards management agency.

Brave Dog will manage all aspects of an award competition including the initial development of award categories, promotion of the competition, receiving and processing entries, recruiting judges, customer service for entrants and judges, organizing and conducting judging panels, tabulating results, advising the finalists, and working with the award show producers.

“We are a full service award management agency and we have over 15 years experience running complex, high volume international award competitions for the entertainment industry. We’re drawing on that experience and we feel it will serve us well with future clients.” said Brave Dog Managing Director Stephen McCarthy.

In addition to competition management services the company will also operate as a service bureau providing competition entry services to design, advertising or marketing agencies, production companies and television channels and networks.

Brave Dog Executive Director Castano noted, “Some companies have entire departments to handle entering award competitions – but most don’t. Usually the task of entering is given to people who have no connection with the work, and many times the lack of experience can result in mistakes being made or instructions not being followed appropriately. Sometimes employees get new assignments or interns go home for summer break. The continuity is broken and the result, as we’ve seen all too often in the competitions we have managed, is that excellent material is disqualified or scores poorly. We can prevent all that. And make the process of entry into any competition a relatively painless one for our clients.”
