About Pinnacles

The Pinnacle Awards are an opportunity for local organizations to showcase their most successful marketing campaigns. Awards are judged based off metrics and measurable tactics.

Judging of the 2019 Pinnacle Awards will be done by the distinguished members of the AMA Madison Chapter. Evaluation will use a predetermined point system, with a set minimum point requirement for each award level. If no entries meet the set minimum point requirement in a category, no award will be given for that category.  The entry with the highest score within each category will be awarded the Pinnacle.  In the event of a tie the designated judging captain will select a winner.

Award categories are Pinnacle and award of merit (gold). Pinnacle statues will be awarded to Pinnacle winners.  Awards of merit and students will receive framed certificates.
