The Summit International Awards puts together high-quality judging teams using its peer-to-peer nomination process. This is one of the primary differences between the Summit Awards and other awards programs and allows our winners to celebrate recognition by industry leaders. Summit Award jury service is a great opportunity to review a wide variety of advertising and other marketing communication from around the world.

We seek jurors that have a depth of experience in the industry and a desire to give back. They are invited to recognize exceptional creativity and marketing know-how and to evaluate submissions according to the guidelines and deadlines set forth by the awards.

All Judging is performed online using the Summit Awards’ secure jury portal.

Vetted judges are invited for inclusion as a juror. They are assigned specific categories and may work both individually or as part of a team. Judges agree to review all assigned entries using the Summit Awards’ scoring parameters within the given timeline and in an impartial manner. Adherence to the judging guidelines set forth by the Summit Awards is paramount. Evaluations found not adhering to the Summit Awards judging guidelines will be not be included in the results.

To ensure impartiality, the awards scores on a curve with minimum standard requirements. Percentage models, or stair-step scoring systems, (100-90, 89-80) are not considered to be reputable evaluation systems by the Summit International Awards.
