We’re excited to announce that we’ve been named a recipient of a 2018 Summit Creative Award!
Out of more than 5,000 submissions from 24 countries, Abstrakt has been named a Bronze winner in the 2018 Summit Creative Award® competition for its creative work. The winning piece was an infographic titled, “The Cost of DIY Lead Generation,” created by Abstrakt graphic designer, Kim Cluchey.
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 23rd year, 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 13 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 user experience, and the ability to communicate and persuade. Winners were selected in a wide-range of categories from print and broadcast to, online advertising and social media.
“Winning a Summit Creative Award is a significant accomplishment in one’s career. With vetted judges, tough judging criteria, two-phase 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.”
This year’s SCA creative competition included companies from countries all around the world: Australia, Austria, Bangladesh, Canada, Croatia, Denmark, England, Hong Kong, India, Italy, Ireland, Malaysia, Martinique – French West Indies, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, United Arab Emirates and the United States.
