Excellence in Marketing Awards

About the Awards

The Excellence in Marketing Awards (EMMAs) are the American Marketing Association Central Virginia (AMACVA) Chapter’s annual signature competition and awards gala. The competition recognizes and celebrates the work of area marketing professionals. The evaluation of submissions and the presentation of awards inspires the continued pursuit of marketing excellence.

2019 Rules for Entry

The EMMAs competition is open to all businesses, non-profits, advertising agencies, consultants, and freelancers in the Central Virginia region, which includes the areas in and around Albemarle County, Charlottesville, Waynesboro, Staunton, Harrisonburg, Lexington, Lynchburg, Roanoke, and Blacksburg.

Work must have been completed during the 2017 or 2018 calendar years. No previous EMMAs submissions allowed.

Judging Process

The entries are judged by a distinguished panel of independent judges. The judges have had no direct or indirect involvement in the production of an entry, nor have they had a personal relationship with any member of an entry’s production staff. Entries are blind judged against an evaluation rubric. Submissions are evaluated against the rubric criteria, not judged against each other. To that end, there may be one award, more than one award, or no award given in each category.
