The Summit Creative Award recognizes and celebrates the creative achievements of small and medium-sized advertising agencies worldwide with annual billings under $30 million. 

Celebrating its 28th year, the Summit Creative Award has firmly established itself as the premier arbiter of creative excellence for firms of this size and has become a coveted honor.

Entries in 18 major categories are judged against a stringent set of standards. During its blind judging (entering company names withheld) the Board of Judges search for and identify innovative and creative concepts, strong executions and user experience, and the ability to communicate and persuade. Winners were selected in a wide-range of categories from print and broadcast to, online advertising and social media.

“Winning a Summit Creative Award is a significant accomplishment in one’s career. Only deserving entries receive recognition with vetted judges, tough judging criteria, two-phase blind judging processes, and strict bylaws limiting winners.” Said Jocelyn Luciano, Managing Director for the Summit International Awards. “The creative work this year was outstanding. Watching the judges debate the details of individual entries in the run-off for the tops spots was inspiring.”

The Summit Awards organization was founded in 1994. Annually it conducts the Summit Creative Award, the Summit Marketing Effectiveness Award and the Summit Emerging Media Award.
