Summit Creative Award (SCA)

Small and medium-sized agencies worldwide produce a great deal of outstanding advertising, yet creative competitions are dominated by large advertising agencies, large clients, and large budgets.

Since 1994, the Summit Creative Award has recognized creative firms and helped them stand out in the crowd. This international advertising competition offers participants a unique opportunity to showcase their talents alongside similarly positioned agencies, and to have their work judged by experts in the advertising field. Our exclusive award-selection process means winners have earned the right to broadcast their achievements far and wide.

Companies and individuals from more than 50 countries and across five continents have participated in this prestigious 27-year competition – the first and best of its kind.

Our organization, whose aim is to laud the creative work of less-than-huge agencies makes competition affordable and accessible. We offer streamlined internet submissions, many ways to tout winner’s achievements, and a friendly, knowledgeable customer service staff. Award certificates and internet medallions are free to winners, and elegant custom trophies are optionally available as well.
