2022 entry closed! Voting will open 11/7.

These aren’t your everyday marketing and advertising awards.

Nope! We don’t want to see the work, know your strategy, or evaluate any performance results. These awards are about what really matters. We want to hear about your choices and your life. And how you’ve used work to unlock your passion, your mission, and your harmony.
