CNN Worldwide was named Global Excellence Marketing Team of the Year, while FX Networks has won North America Marketing Team of the Year at the Promax Awards 2019, the industry’s top prize for entertainment marketing and design.
The awards were presented Thursday night in a ceremony hosted by musical act Penny & Sparrow at the JW Marriott at L.A. Live.
Awards for two separate competitions were handed out Thursday in a joint ceremony: Global Excellence and North America. The first competition recognizes outstanding achievement from the leading media companies on every continent, while the latter competition celebrates marketing and design teams in the United States and Canada.
Other top winners for this year’s Promax Awards included National Geographic, AMC Networks International (Southern Europe) and Comedy Central in the Global Excellence Awards and Viceland, Showtime Networks and Nickelodeon in the North America competition.
The ceremony is the culmination of the Promax Conference 2019, the annual summit where the world’s leading media companies and agencies gather for three days of cutting-edge insights, strategy, creativity and professional development.
Winners are chosen in a two-step process: an initial round of online peer judging by Promax members and the board of directors determines the finalists, while a second round of juries convened in Los Angeles and New York selects the winners.
This year, for the first time ever, jurors from Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Latin America gathered in New York for a Global Excellence Awards jury.
