Participate in the
2014 Multicultural Excellence Awards program!

The call for entries for the 2014 ANA Multicultural Excellence Awards is now closed. Thanks to all who have entered! If there are questions, please contact Talia Fisher (tfisher@ana.net).

The ANA Multicultural Excellence Awards celebrate the year's best multicultural advertising campaigns. The awards, sponsored by the ANA Multicultural Marketing & Diversity Committee, raise awareness and exposure of the outstanding work being done in the areas of African-American, Asian, Hispanic, LGBT, People with Disabilities, and Total Market advertising.

ANA member and non-member companies, or agencies and media companies submitting on behalf of their clients may enter the awards. Winners will be announced at the ANA's 16th Annual Multicultural Marketing & Diversity Conference, which takes place November 9–11 in Miami, Fla. at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach. A portion of the proceeds collected from the awards submission fees will help fund scholarships for high-potential multicultural students who plan to pursue careers in advertising and/or marketing.
