MarCom Awards is an international creative competition that recognizes outstanding achievement by marketing and communication professionals. Entries are received from corporate marketing and communication departments, advertising agencies, PR firms, design shops, production companies, and freelancers. There are expected to be over 5,000 entries from throughout the United States, Canada, and dozens of other countries in the 2020 MarCom Awards competition. The competition has grown to perhaps the largest of its kind in the world. A look at the winner’s list shows a range in size from individual communicators to media conglomerates and Fortune 500 companies. The competition is so well respected in the industry that national public relations organizations, local ad clubs, and local business communicator chapters are entrants.
