Board of Judges We would like to thank those serving on this year’s Summit Award judging panels. These discriminating professionals volunteered their time to scrutinize submissions, and without their dedication and hard work, the awards would not hold the prestige it enjoys today.

Verification – The Summit Awards provides digital verification of your winning achievement. To access, log in to the Summit Awards platform, and go to ‘my entries’ to print your digital certificate.


Summit International AwardsThis US-based organization pilots three separate awards – the Summit Creative Award, Summit Marketing Effectiveness Award, and the Summit Emerging Media Award. It is not tied to an advertiser, magazine, trade association, ad club, or other outside influence. The Summit Awards is independent, international in its scope, and focuses on identifying superior creative and effective marketing. It conducts impartial, ‘blind’ judging events and, once completed, recognizes, celebrates, and promotes creative, effective marketing for winning companies and individuals. Its judging process is impartial and free from outside influences. It withholds both the names of the judges and entrants throughout the entire evaluation process. This anonymity shelters all involved from any vested interest that may attempt to influence the award’s outcome. Following our bylaws, the Summit Awards limits the number of winning entries.This capping of awards ensures your win remains a coveted honor.

Over the past 28 years, the Summit Awards has established itself as one of the premier arbiters of creative and marketing excellence. Being recognized by the Summit Awards brings prestige and additional value. Winning provides validation of exceptional work and functions as a respected industrywide critique. This honor can also aid in efforts to attract new accounts; reinforce relationships with clients; reward employees, partners, and subcontractors; and motivate team members.

Summit Emerging Media Award – Summit Emerging Media Award is a recognition and celebration of creativity, innovation, and individuals pushing the boundaries of excellence in digital media forms. It also celebrates the innovators behind them. Traditionally, marketing creativity has focused strictly on the big idea. Today, communication needs to break new ground – to keep up with an ever-increasing pace. This award is for marketers, coders, designers, developers, innovators, visionaries, and leaders in the exciting newer realms of advertising and marketing communications. It honors those who introduce new methods, set the pace for emerging media, and demonstrate excellence on the web through apps, innovators, analytics, influencers, experiential, videos, and social media.

Today, many businesses and entrepreneurs face the challenges of an increasingly global economy and a do-it-yourself marketplace. While many companies have invested in initiatives to maintain stability or grow, it is increasingly difficult to differentiate their beneficial differences.

Recognition of your company by the Summit Awards helps it stand out. Winning is not an easy feat. Winning provides validation and an objective critique and unique opportunities to showcase your creative excellence – publicity, hosted business profiles, trophies, vellum certificates, and digital verification. These benefits are instrumental in helping achieve the winner’s business goals of attracting new accounts, reinforcing relationships with existing clients, rewarding employees, partners, and subcontractors, and motivating creative team members.
