Welcome to the Summit International Awards



Honoring the best web, design, video, advertising, interactive,

mobile & social marketing from creative agencies worldwide.


Summit Awards, a respected organization with a 30-year history, is a prominent player in the communications and marketing industry. Our independence from external influences, like advertisers, magazines, trade associations, and ad clubs, sets us apart. We administer three prestigious annual marketing awards, each dedicated to showcasing outstanding work.


At the Summit Awards, our steadfast mission is to recognize, celebrate, and promote exceptional creativity and innovation across diverse global media platforms. We champion creative brilliance in all its forms, honoring individuals and organizations that consistently push boundaries, inspire audiences, and shape the creative landscape. Our vision is to be the leading global platform, fostering a vibrant community that values artistic expression, encourages collaboration, and propels the creative industry forward. Through our rigorous awards program, educational initiatives, and networking opportunities, we empower creative professionals to reach new heights and drive positive change worldwide.


The Summit Creative Award stands out for its dedication to promoting diversity and fairness. It levels the playing field by limiting eligibility to smaller companies, providing SMBs with the opportunity to shine. This approach ensures that the award isn't dominated solely by industry giants with vast budgets, but instead focuses on the sheer brilliance and ingenuity of the creative work submitted.



30 years recognizing and celebrating exceptional creativity.
