Promax Creating What's Next is a student award to celebrate you, the next generation of marketing geniuses.

What is Promax?

For over 60 years Promax has been a leader and advocate for the influencers in entertainment marketing. Promax is a member association representing more than 10,000 companies and individuals from major media organizations, marketing agencies, research companies, strategic and creative vendors and technology providers around the globe. The Promax Award, given out throughout the world is the highest honor awarded to people in our industry. And now, that honor is something open to you!

What is the Promax Creating What's Next Award?

Open to students only, it’s an annual awards competition designed to showcase the talent represented across the country by the next generation of marketing professionals and creatives. Each year submissions are made in a select number of categories to be judged by a jury of industry pros.

Who are these industry pros?
Your cutting-edge work will be viewed by executives and creatives from FX, NBC, CNN, Refinery 29, Facebook and more. This is your chance to get in front of them (and make an impression before you graduate, hint, hint).

How much will entering set me back?
There are two ways to enter:

  1. As a non-member you can spend $​25 per entry.

  2. You can spend $49 to become an Academic Member*. This will give you unlimited entries, a free pass to our annual June Conference and access to all online assets including video on demand from all our conferences.

Get your creative juices flowing and take a look at the categories you can submit to. Your shot at industry wide recognition is just a click away. For more information, please contact Sam Jae at
