The Collegiate Advertising Awards program is an elite national program created to honor today’s most talented marketing professionals for outstanding excellence in all forms of advertising, marketing and promotion specific to higher education products and services. The Collegiate Advertising Awards allows your marketing and advertising efforts to compete against similarly sized colleges, universities and other educational organizations from across the nation. A wide range of categories cover virtually all possible entries from branding, social media, recruiting and fund-raising to multi-media campaigns, educational fairs, blogs and much more.
All entries are centralized for judging (per category) by a panel of design and education marketing professionals with decades of combined experience. Entries are judged on: Creativity, Layout/Design, Typography, Production, Quality & Overall Effectiveness. The top scoring entries are then honored with the appropriate award depending on final judges scores. Judge’s Choice awards are presented to division winners receiving a perfect score from the judges. Beautiful, Gold, Silver, and Bronze certificates are issued by both Group and Category accordingly.
The 2018 COLLEGIATE ADVERTISING AWARDS program was a huge success with more than 900 entries from across the United States representing a diverse plethora of educational facilities from small community colleges to very large schools and universities.
