Now in its 11th year, the ANA Genius Awards, presented by Neustar, a TransUnion Company, recognizes the best and brightest marketers for their demonstrable use of advanced analytics to drive better business outcomes.

More details regarding the 2023 Entries will be posted in April 2023.

How to Enter

1. Create an account

2. Identify yourself as a representative from an eligible organization or an agency seeking to submit on behalf of an eligible organization

3. Fill out all of the required fields for the category or categories that you are entering for

4. Upload all supporting files

5. Remember to select ‘Save’ on any necessary pages

Entries for the Genius Awards can be submitted by client-marketers, or agencies acting on their behalf. Participating brands are welcome to recognize their agencies and vendor partners in their submission materials.

Brands are encouraged to enter as many categories as they wish (but can only win in one). If submitting entries across multiple categories, please ensure each entry features a different analytics program. The programs can be related, but each entry must be framed distinctly around the category of entry to be considered.

There are no fees to enter and all client-side marketers are welcome, regardless of their ANA membership.
