Did you know? Just like our accredited members, AAHA staff are champions for excellence, too! The AAHA team was awarded six MarCom awards in October for marketing and communications pieces.

The MarCom Awards program is an international creative competition that recognizes outstanding achievement by marketing and communication professionals. The awards are administered and judged by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals (AMCP).

An international organization consisting of several thousand creative professionals, the AMCP oversees awards and recognition programs, provides judges, and sets standards for excellence. Entries come from corporate marketing and communication departments, advertising agencies, PR firms, design shops, production companies, and freelancers. Winners range from individual communicators to media conglomerates and Fortune 500 companies. The competition is well respected and has grown to perhaps the largest of its kind in the world.

Judges are industry professionals who look for companies and individuals whose talents exceed a high standard of excellence and whose work serves as a benchmark for the industry. Entries come from throughout the United States, Canada, and numerous other countries.

The AAHA team took home three Platinum Awards, one Gold Award, and one Honorable Mention. The team received an award for each piece that was submitted, ranging from videos to infographics and advertisements.

In the past, about 15 percent of entries won the Platinum Award and around 20 percent the Gold Award. Approximately 10 percent were Honorable Mention winners.
