Judging

 

The call for entries to the 2024 ANA In-House Excellence Awards is now closed.
Judging begins February 29.

 

Main Round

ANA In-House Excellence Award judges are client-side marketers, agency executives, and in-house agency professionals. The candidates are screened by the ANA and are assigned to judge entries from the categories in which they have expertise. Main round judges evaluate the submissions on three key factors: strategy, creative execution, and results.

Grand Jury

The ANA will convene an exclusive jury of senior client-side marketer members representing the highest standards of in-house marketing work that drives business results. These leaders will select and choose the work worthy of the overall “Best in Show” winner!

Winners will be announced during a LIVE Awards Gala at the 2024 ANA In-House Agency Conference on May 15, 2024 in Carlsbad, California.

We are thankful for last year's two rounds of ANA In-House Excellence Awards judges. Without your diligence and expertise, we would not be able to make this happen.

Here is what prior judges have to say:

I thoroughly enjoy this experience. Not only does it allow me to give back to the industry, but it also helps inspire me by seeing how other organizations outside of my vertical tackle business challenges.

Being selected as a judge for the 2023 In-House Excellence Awards has been a unique opportunity to be exposed to inspiring marketing work aiming for excellence. I truly enjoyed this experience and I'm looking forward to the next one.

The in-house landscape is as varied as the external agency network and getting to see a range of work from different teams continued to expand my view of what's possible.

Serving as an ANA judge is not only a great way to give back to the community but an inspiring opportunity that helps me stay up to date with the best work happening now.

It was a privilege to be asked to judge the In-House Excellence Awards. I appreciate the opportunity to see and evaluate incredible ideas and execution from top brands' in house agencies. The work was inspiring and innovative; it's rare that we in the in-house agency world get a chance to see what others are doing and how they're raising the bar. Now to do the same for my own team!

To those who enjoy the creativity and strategy aspects of marketing and advertising, judging the awards provides a unique and valuable experience. I highly recommend it for managers looking for some inspiration and individual contributors looking to build market intelligence.
