Multicultural Excellence Awards Judging

Industry leaders who are a part of the ANA Multicultural Marketing & Diversity committee or have an expertise in Multicultural Marketing have the opportunity to become a judge. Over the course of three rounds of judging, agency and client side executives evaluate the submissions on three key factors: Creativity, Relevance and Other. The Score weighting is as follows: 

40% Creativity
What brought the spark and energy to a campaign?

40% Relevance
How does a campaign connect with the target audience in an authentic way?  How were cultural insights realized and applied in the strategy to engage with a specific diverse audience?

This in-depth review will help identify which submissions are worthy of consideration to win a Multicultural Excellence Award. All winners will then be recognized by the industry at the 2024 Multicultural Excellence Awards Gala on the second evening of the  ANA Multicultural & Diversity Conference Presented by Amazon Ads!

Here is what prior judges have to say:

Having the privilege to review the best and most brilliant examples of multicultural marketing was tremendously inspiring. It reignited my passion in using advertising and marketing to change the world. We truly hold the influence and to see brands take this responsibility seriously is truly heartwarming.

Participating as a judge is invigorating. The organization makes the process easy. I was allowed to focus on the case studies and the work. Outstanding experience!

Judging the multicultural excellence awards allows me to mindfully connect with meaningful campaigns. The creative we review goes beyond messaging features and benefits to powerfully shift perceptions and welcome change. The rewards are in the results and the award is the recognition of the talents and teams it took to achieve those goals.

I was able to learn from peers and leverage different approach to bring insights to life. I truly enjoy the out of the box thinking to continue connecting with consumer with a common insight viewed from a different perspective.
