Diversity in Marketing and Advertising Award

This portion of the competition will invite local marketers who address(ed) issues through their campaign relating to any disenfranchised group – BIPOC, generational, gender, cultural, disabled individuals, and the inauthentic and sometimes clichéd portrayals of different groups within current creative ads, platforms, and marketing. 

The campaign should demonstrate a commitment to ensure representation and inclusion remain a priority across various campaigns and platforms, above and beyond national holidays or recognized date content (i.e., Hispanic Awareness Month, International Women’s Month). A winning campaign recognizes the vital importance of continuously challenging perceptions and encouraging better representation and authenticity in marketing, and advertising.
