Stay informed! Sign up to receive details about the 2019 Genius Awards.


The Genius Awards recognizes excellence in four categories of marketing data & analytics. Only client-side, brand marketers can enter, but agencies, vendors, and colleagues and others can nominate a brand marketer of their choosing. We will reach out directly to nominated marketers and encourage them to enter.



Winners and finalists will receive widespread recognition in the media and on stage at major ANA events. Winners will share in a $100,000 cash prize, with proceeds going to a charity of their choice. Past charities benefiting include UNICEF, American Heart Association, Fisher House Foundation and Girls Who Code.

The 2018 Genius Awards program is now closed. Check out the finalists and winners here.
