Produced By

The Top Women in Marketing Awards shout out the women among us who hustle from home, from office, and every stop in between to exceed expectations. Over the last year, these women overcame unpredictable challenges and obstacles dropped in front of them while being the fuel for creative excellence and catalysts for change.

These are the women making names for themselves at companies spanning both brands, and agencies, and the b2b and b2c sectors. They are groundbreakers and ceiling shatterers. Creative visionaries and mentors. 


There are 15 categories available for submission.
Entries can be made into more than one category.
