“The Summit Creative Award (SCA) recognizes and celebrates the creative achievements of small and medium sized advertising agencies worldwide with annual billings under $30 million. Celebrating its 20th year in 2014, the SCA has firmly established itself as the premier arbiter of creative excellence for firms of this size and has become a coveted honor,” Ben said.
“Winning a Summit Creative Award is a significant accomplishment in ones career. With vetted judges, tough judging criteria, blind judging processes, and strict bylaws limiting winners, only deserving entries receive recognition,” said Jocelyn Luciano, Executive Director for the Summit International Awards (SIA).
“The creative work this year was outstanding. Watching the judges debate the details of individual entries in the run-off for the tops spots was inspiring.”
