Founded in 1996 as the Association of Hispanic Advertising Agencies, the Hispanic Marketing Council is the national trade organization of all marketing, communications, and media firms with trusted Hispanic expertise.

For this year’s awards, the HMC has added a research category and expanded its jury to not only include a broad pool of diverse jurors representing the biggest brands and award-winning agencies, but also to ensure each category has its own jury.  Submit your campaign for consideration before the February 23 deadline.

“The HMC Strategic Excellence Awards has grown to be a key player in the awards circuit. Collage Group is proud to join forces with HMC as a sponsor in awarding insightful ingenuity in our market and honoring the visionary teams behind great work.”

In response to the sheer numbers and high quality of entries received, the HMC has expanded the jury to allow for more precision in driving courageous creative. Under the leadership of jury president Marissa Solis, Senior Vice President of Global Brand & Consumer Marketing, National Football League, a total of 31 jurors will be divided into groups of three to five to review entries in nine categories and identify the gold, silver and bronze award-winning campaigns: 

A grand jury will ratify the results, select the “Best in Show” and “Grand Prix” winners, and invite these awardees to present their case studies at the HMC 2024 Annual Summit on April 11 in New York City.

The Strategic Excellence Awards are open to all U.S.-based companies whose media has run since January 2023 and feature a simple submission process similar to that of Cannes and FIAP.
