The Association of National Advertisers today announced the finalists for the 2004 Multicultural Excellence Awards during their Annual Conference at The Ritz-Carlton Naples, in Naples, Florida.
The ANA Multicultural Excellence Awards, now in its fourth year, recognize ANA member companies that have produced outstanding multicultural advertising campaigns that ran between June 2003 and May 2004.
The 2004 grand prize award recipients in each category will be announced at a special ceremony during the ANA’s Multicultural Marketing Conference, November 7-9 at The Disneyland Grand Californian Hotel in Anaheim, California.
The awards are sponsored by the ANA Multicultural Marketing Committee. The committee, which was established in 1998, helps ANA members share knowledge and best practices in marketing to America’s burgeoning ethnic markets. A portion of the proceeds collected from the awards submission fees will be used to help fund scholarships for high-potential multicultural students who plan to pursue careers in advertising and/or marketing.
