2021 AMA Ace Awards

Through the adversity of 2020, we all experienced unprecedented…. Ok, you get it. Last year was new for all of us and it was tough to say the least. The theme for our marketing awards ceremony, the 2021 Ace Awards, is PIVOT because, let’s face it, many of us had to completely remodel strategic plans to reflect the climate in 2020. We heard the word PIVOT a million and a half times and had to implement new ideas quickly to keep up. It’s time to acknowledge the hard work you put into 2020 and the successful campaigns you developed.

The Ace Awards is an annual event hosted by the Reno-Tahoe American Marketing Association (AMA). Our goal of the Ace Awards is to recognize and acknowledge marketing excellence within our community. Submissions into the awards must be from an individual, organization or agency located in the greater Reno-Tahoe area, but the client can be out of the region. For agiencies that have a Reno base out of multiple locations nationwide, we require that the marketers who completed the work should be local.


In an effort to cover the costs of the event, we have had to add a small fee for submissions. We still believe in giving everyone a fair and equal chance at winning an Ace Award, which is why we have chosen to keep the fee as low as possible, at only $20 an entry. We thank you for your understanding and look forward to seeing all of the amazing work in the Reno-Tahoe area this past year!
