Since virtually every agency in Idaho qualifies as a small agency under Ad Age’s guidelines (sorry Publicis and Accenture Interactive)…
Each year, the Ad Age Small Agency Awards uncover and honor small, independent agencies that are producing innovative and exciting work. These teams strategize and execute groundbreaking ideas to compete with work done by some of advertising’s oldest, largest and most sought-after partners.
The competition is tough, but the reward is big. Finalists will be notified mid-June and winners are announced and celebrated at our Small Agency Conference & Awards, to be held in July 2020.
The final deadline to enter is April 23, 2020 at 5pm EDT
What does that mean, exactly? Well, from their website:
The aim of the awards is to try to uncover the best small agencies both in the U.S. (those agencies with fewer than 75 employees) and overseas (those agencies with fewer than 50 employees).
We are charging $150 per entry. Every shop that meets the size requirement is eligible, regardless of marketing discipline. And we’re not splitting this into categories by medium — we’re far more interested in finding the best ideas that did the most to move business.
There will be two categories: Best Small Agency and Best Small Agency Campaign. Ad Age will recognize a U.S. and International winner for each, as well as finalists for both categories. Profiles of the winning agencies will be published both in print and online on July 27th.
Cost to enter is $150 per entry. If you think you’ve got the goods, the entry deadline is May 22nd.
