Summit Creative Award
Small and medium-size agencies worldwide produce a great deal of outstanding advertising, yet creative competitions are dominated by large advertising agencies, large clients and large budgets.
Since 1994, the Summit Creative Award has provided a vehicle for creative firms to receive the recognition they have long deserved. This international advertising competition offers participants a unique opportunity to showcase their talents alongside similarly positioned agencies, and to have their work judged by experts in the advertising field. Our exclusive award selection process means winners have earned the right to broadcast their achievements far and wide.
Companies and individuals from more than 50 countries and across five continents participate in this prestigious 20-year competition - the first and best of its kind.
Our organization aims to laud the creative work of less-than-huge agencies, and makes competition affordable and accessible. We offer multiple entry discounts, streamlined internet submissions, many ways for winners to celebrate their achievements, and a friendly, knowledgeable customer service staff. Award certificates and internet medallions are free to winners, and elegant custom trophies are optionally available.

Summit Marketing Effectiveness Award
The Summit Marketing Effectiveness Award (Summit MEA) allows advertising companies to demonstrate their ability to influence consumer's knowledge, attitudes and beliefs. The business of advertising is about creatively and effectively executing an advertiser's goals, and the Summit MEA gives successful firms an opportunity to highlight their effectiveness.
Advertising and marketing firms face a number of barriers, including small budgets, product quality and pricing, selection, competition, distribution, geo-political and macroeconomic issues. The MEA Award offers agencies an opportunity to present ways they have overcome barriers to deliver a successful campaign.

Summit Emerging Media Award
Media are changing rapidly. The Summit Emerging Media Award (Summit EMA) evolved through a need to recognize those pushing the bounds of the communication badlands.
Traditional advertising focuses strictly on "the big idea." Today's best advertising needs to break new ground to keep up with rapidly developing technologies and social media. This is the heart of the craft's new form -- one can no longer rely on simple formulaic solutions; only engaging media will compel contemporary audiences.
This award offers the opportunity for leaders, innovators and visionaries to prove their standing on a global stage. We offer recognition to those who demonstrate keen foresight in emerging media, introduce new methods, and direct and set the pace for emerging media.
