Summit Creative AwardCelebrating 23-Years of Creative Excellence
S
mall 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 enabled 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 have participated in this prestigious 23-year competition - the first and best of its kind.

Our organization, whose aim is to laud the creative work of less-than-huge
SCA Logoagencies, makes competition affordable and accessible. We offer streamlined internet submissions, many ways to tout winner's achievements, and a friendly, knowledgeable customer service staff. Award certificates and internet medallions are free to winners, and elegant custom trophies are optionally available as well.

Benefits:
Association with the prestige of an SIA competition is press-worthy and garners media exposure.

The SIA is committed to helping winners make the most of their success. Winners are publicized through various media, social networks and at the award's website: www.summitawards.com.

The SIA is the only awards organization to offer winner microsite profiles. The microsites are free, fully customizable company profiles hosted on our highly trafficked website, which drives traffic to winners' sites. Past winners have had thousands of visitors explore their microsite profiles, increasing their website's prominence and visibility on the internet.

These microsite profiles offer an easy-to-use, built in WYSIWYG editor, space to upload images of winning entries, and links to winners portfolios. The metatag spider locates winner's sites metatags which significantly increases web rankings. These profiles are visited by companies who search out winners' accomplishments while making decisions about where to invest their advertising dollars.

Judging:
The SIA has the distinct foresight to use world-class judges in the industry and previous top SIA winners who have the know-how to evaluate the merits of advertising creativity. Entries are judged against other submissions in their category instead of compared to an arbitrary standard, creating a true competitive environment. This means that winners not only meet a minimum standard, but truly stand out from the crowd.

SCA judges from around the globe participate on our jury panels. They represent small, medium and large firms as well as universities, and all are tops in their fields. Judges are from entities such as: Wieden & Kennedy, Tribal DDB, Turner Studios, Promoseven McCann Network, Grey Advertising, MWW Group, TBWA/Chiat/Day, Y&R, The Art Institute, New York University, Leo Burnett, Ogilvy & Mather, Saatchi & Saatchi, and XM - Hong Kong.

Submissions are judged on strength of concept, quality of execution and ability to persuade. Respected creative professionals with a depth of industry experience sit on three judging panels: Design, Broadcast and Interactive Media.

The awards employs blind judging: company names are withheld. Judging lasts through April/May. Entrants are notified of award results electronically, and winners are sent a congratulatory packet by standard mail in June.

Nominate

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.
