Internet's Advertising Awards

The IAC Awards provides an opportunity to highlight your best online advertising in 86 industries and 9 online formats including, online ad, video, mobile, newsletter, email and social media. According to, digital advertising reached more than $616 billion (USD) in 2022. As spending increases, creative agencies need ways to objectively demonstrate to advertisers their ability to create outstanding online marketing materials. Winning awards is one excellent way to accomplish this.

The Web Marketing Association (WMA) was founded in Boston in 1997 to help set a high standard for Internet marketing and corporate web development on the World Wide Web. Staffed by volunteers, this organization is made up of Internet marketing, advertising, PR and design professionals who share an interest for improving the quality of advertising, marketing and promotion used to attract visitors to corporate Web sites.

In 1999, the Web Marketing Association created a new award program to recognize outstanding online advertising in all of its various forms. While many advertising award shows had a category for online, no program was dedicated to it. U

sing the experiences from its highly successful WebAward competition for website development, the WMA created an award program where companies and individuals could enter their best work to be judged against other work in its own industry. The IAC Awards were born.
