The Web Marketing Association is looking for a select group of Internet advertising professionals who are willing to judge entries for the 2024 Internet Advertising Competition. Each judge will be assigned to specific entries and must agree to review assigned entries in a timely and impartial manner using guidelines provided by the Web Marketing Association.

Judging an award show like the IAC Awards is a great way to share your experience and expertise with the online advertising community. It is an honor and an important responsibility when you are chosen to participate as a judge. You are helping to set the standard for award winning advertising throughout the Web.
