Title: "Woody's America: Interactive Map" - Visionary Winners

The Woody Guthrie Center's goal was to celebrate Woody's life and legacy and educate a new generation about his important role in American history. As visitors walk into the open gallery space they see a large colorful map wall emanating from a nine screen (3x3) Planar video wall. A set of wooden barn doors on the front face form the outline of the United States surrounding the monitor array. The multi-touch screens encourage visitor interaction as the vivid imagery of the attract screen transitions into an animated backdrop of Woody's artwork, featuring moving icons that travel across the map that visitors can reach for. Each icon opens to reveal images and text tidbits that relate to the geographic location and the thematic focus on American History, American Music, and Woody's songs documenting life in America.



Are you or a colleague ready to demonstrate your leadership in the industry by serving on the SIA Board of Judges?  

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 SIA and other awards programs and allows SIA winners to celebrate recognition by industry leaders. SIA jury service is a great opportunity to review a wide variety of advertising and other marketing communication from around the world.


In order 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.


We seek jurors that have a depth of experience in the industry and a desire to give back. Judges are selected for their industry experience, their ability to recognize exceptional creativity and marketing know-how, and their ability to evaluate submissions according to the guidelines and deadlines set forth by the SIA.

Service opportunities and timing:

Summit Creative Award, May/June

Summit Marketing Effectiveness Award, Sept/Oct

Summit Emerging Media Award, Nov/Dec


All Judging is performed online using the SIA 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 SIA scoring parameters within the given timeline and in an impartial manner. Adherence to the judging guidelines set forth by the SIA is paramount. Evaluations found not adhering to the SIA judging guidelines will be not be included in the results.
