2018 SPARK! Awards Finalists

22 Feb 2018 SPARK! Awards Finalists

Are you ready to earn your star on Charleston’s marketing walk of fame?

The results are in! This year, 158 exceptional entries were submitted. Do you see your entries among the finalists?

Entries were judged by the board of directors of AMA Reno-Tahoe with assistance from Stewart Law, past president of AMA Oklahoma City. The top 3 entries were selected as finalists in each category. In the case of tied scores, up to 5 finalists were selected. Marketer of the Year nominations were judged by a select committee of AMA Charleston’s past chapter leaders. We thank all of our judges for their time and assistance to make the Spark! Awards a success.

Join us on the red carpet at the 2018 Spark! Awards on March 8 at Harborside East. You’ll see the work of the Lowcountry’s best and brightest marketers on the silver screen. Mix and mingle with Charleston’s creative moguls and starlets, and find out who will take home this year’s Spark! Awards. The theme is Old Hollywood, and special prizes will be given to the best-dressed attendees – so turn up the glamour and get ready for a star-studded night!
