We set new international industry standards for award excellence

International Awards Associate (IAA), believes that recognition of creative professionals plays a crucial role in the growth of communities, and the economy as a whole. Our organization is composed of award-winning communications professionals, who are dedicated to searching out the exceptionally creative “stars” and to give them the recognition they deserve.

IAA also stands for “Inspire, Advance, Achieve.” Our mission is to honor, promote and encourage creativity by establishing new standards of excellence for evaluating all aspects of media design, production and distribution.

  • To recognize professional excellence, from industry to industry, internationally and domestically
  • To create award platforms that are industry-appropriate
  • To reward and encourage the future “stars” and to help move their industries forward

IAA’s goal is to provide affordable, independent competitions on an international stage that are respected as fair and open to all, regardless of company size or bottom line.

  • To sanction and oversee awards and recognition programs that identify and recognize excellence in the industry.
  • To facilitate the vibrant exchange of new ideas, business models and trend information.
  • To educate members and promote innovative thinking about the constantly changing nature of advertising, print, film, television, interactive media, and other industries.


IAA’s initial goals and mission were established in 2012. After four years of preparation, IAA successfully conducted two awards competitions in 2016. We plan to introduce a new awards competition annually, in keeping with our mission – to honor, promote and encourage creativity by providing a new standard of excellence for evaluating media design production and distribution. By recognizing the excellence of creative professionals worldwide, we can help them gain exposure, job/sales, increase their client bases – and by doing so, raise the whole industry to the next level.
