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 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.


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!

Submissions opening soon!

We will be opening submissions soon, be sure to check out the categories for this year’s awards.

This year, we will also be collecting nominations for outstanding marketing professionals:

Our Selection Process

We ask the Reno/Tahoe community to help crowdsource great examples of local marketing across 10 categories! The success of this event is 100% reliant on community involvement and support. Help us make this our best year yet!

After reaching out to all of the nominees and collecting additional detail about each of the nominated marketing initiatives, the Reno-Tahoe AMA board will vote to narrow down the total number of finalists to 30 entries across 10 categories.

The judging committee for this year’s event will be members of the our non-partial AMA sister chapter located in South Carolina. The judging process offers AMA members the unique opportunity to learn more about some of the area’s best examples of marketing, what made them effective, and why.
