2019 Excellence in Marketing Awards (EMMAs)

Memorable marketing

Memorable Moments. Memorable Marketing.

Ferris Bueller got it right. “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” As our schedules fill up and projects come and go, everything becomes an “I’m so busy” blur.

If, as our friend Ferris suggests, you take a break from the busy blur to look around, what stands out? In your fast-paced marketing life, what are those memorable moments that make you sit back, sigh with delight, and think, “Yea, that was pretty great.”

Take a moment to share those stand-out stories and projects with your fellow marketers by participating in the 2019 Excellence in Marketing Awards (EMMAs). The EMMAs are AMACVA’s annual signature competition and awards gala to recognize the work of marketing professionals in the Central Virginia region.
