Participate in the 2013 Multicultural Excellence Awards program! Extended entry deadline: August 30

The ANA Multicultural Excellence Awards celebrate the year's preeminent multicultural advertising campaigns. The awards, sponsored by the ANA Multicultural Marketing & Diversity Committee, were created 13 years ago to help raise awareness and recognition for the outstanding work being done in the areas of African-American, Asian, Hispanic, and LGBT advertising. Nominations are open to both client-side marketers, agencies, and media companies, including ANA members and nonmembers.

This year's award recipients will be announced at the ANA's 15th Annual Multicultural Marketing & Diversity Conference and will take place November 3-5, 2013 at the JW Marriott Los Angeles L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles, Calif. A portion of the proceeds collected from the awards submission fees will help to fund scholarships for high-potential multicultural students who plan to pursue careers in advertising and/or marketing.
