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. For 19-years, the SCA has firmly established itself as the premier arbiter of creative excellence for firms of this size and has become a coveted honor.

Entries in 19 major categories are judged against a stringent set of standards. During its blind judging (entering company names withheld) the Board of Judges search for and identify innovative and creative concepts, strong executions and the ability to communicate and persuade.
