Philly Awards

Are you a nonprofit marketing rockstar?

Nonprofit organizations and creative agencies/freelancers working with nonprofit clients are invited to submit entries to Nonprofit Connect's expert panel of judges. Winners are awarded in fifteen categories, and honored at the Philly Awards celebration in November.

You work hard to create compelling and impactful messages that bring your organization one step closer to achieving your mission. That's why the Philly Awards celebrate outstanding achievements in nonprofit marketing and communications.

Philly - Phil·ly 'filē:  A fun abbreviation of philanthropy; a nineteen-year-old tradition best served with beer.

Judges are asked to review only one category; therefore, even if you submitted an entry, you are still eligible to serve as a judge! You will simply be assigned to a category in which there are no conflicts of interest.
