New York Festivals International Advertising Awards has added a new competition to their Advertising Awards powerhouse competition roster: Sports. The 2018 Advertising Awards Sports competition will honour all facets of advertising, marketing, sponsorships, and creative communications on all platforms in the sports industry sphere.
New York Festivals monitors trends within the advertising and marketing industry and continually updates their competitions to provide opportunities to recognize the innovative creative and technological work advertisers and marketers are using to engage consumers on behalf of the global brands.
