Summit International Awards

Welcome to the Summit International Awards

O ur organization is dedicated to recognizing excellence in the communications and marketing industry. We administer three distinguished award competitions every year with the goal of recognizing stand-out work in the industry.  All three of the awards are conducted by the Summit International Awards (Summit Awards), a United States based organization.

The Summit Awards is the oldest and most prestigious organization administering marketing awards exclusively for firms with limited billings.

Using stringent evaluation criteria and blind judging processes, our competitions reward only those firms whose work exemplifies the best in its class.

The Summit Awards makes its competitions affordable and accessible to the industry. We offer streamlined internet submissions, many ways to tout winner’s achievements, and a friendly, knowledgeable customer service staff. Companies from all over the world invest their promotional dollars in a Summit Awards competition for the opportunity to be recognized as a Summit International Awards winner.
