EMMAs 2017: We Are Central VA

Excellence in Marketing Awards 2017 - category icons

From the UVA Rotunda to the Roanoke Star, our community of marketers is Central VA proud. More than the places, AMA Central VA is about the people: the designers, marketers, copy writers, and public relations pros who create meaningful work year after year.

While the awards themselves recognize that work, the 2017 EMMA’s theme—We Are Central VA—celebrates the people behind the brands.

Join us in celebrating YOU! Submit your EMMAs entries by October 11.

EMMAs category: Marketer of the Year in Central VA

Category Spotlight: Marketer of the Year

Work hard, play hard—and volunteer harder. This year’s Marketer of the Year award will spotlight an individual who has positively impacted their community, whether that community is a Central VA locale, organization, or work family.

No, this isn’t a lifetime achievement award. Marketers young and less-young-than-others alike are invited to nominate themselves or colleagues for the title, which will recognize contributions to the marketing community over the last year.

Community engagement, volunteerism, and marketing contributions will all be considered. Read more about the award criteria in the downloaded EMMAs entry materials.

EMMAs category: Packaging Design in Central VA

New Category: Package Design

We Central Virginians are a boozy bunch. Our shelves overflow with wine bottles, beer cans, and six-packs—because of the enticing packaging, of course!

(Non-alcoholic package designers, don’t fret—packaging entries in all shapes and sizes are encouraged.)

New this year, the Package Design category recognizes consumer facing packaging, B-to-B design, and any packaging created for internal purposes.
