The Hermes Creative Awards program is administered by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals (AMCP) and judges are industry professionals who look for companies and individuals whose talent exceeds a high standard of excellence and whose work serves as a benchmark for the industry. AMCP is an international organization consisting of several thousand marketing, communication, advertising, public relations, digital media production, and freelance professionals.
Earlier this year, the UNT System Office of Communications & Marketing team won several Collegiate Advertising Awards, including Gold for the HR Highlights newsletter; Silver for the UNT System Headquarters Building Rebrand and Black History Month Social Media Campaign; and Bronze for the We Are North Texas Podcast (full series).
The Collegiate Advertising Awards program is an elite national program created to honor today’s most talented marketing professionals for outstanding excellence in all forms of advertising, marketing, and promotion-specific to higher education products and services. All entries are centralized for judging (per category) by a panel of design and education marketing professionals with decades of combined experience. Entries are judged on: creativity, layout/design, typography, production, quality, and overall effectiveness. The top-scoring entries are then honored with the appropriate award depending on final judges’ scores.
