The judging is peer driven, so these honors resonate to winners and nominees alike. In the past 12 years, we have judged and honored the most compelling creative work. And, every year, in every category, the submissions are of the highest caliber. I sincerely encourage individuals and companies to enter the HPA Awards. It’s where we show the world the talent, fierce dedication and hard work behind the story. We look forward to another very special event on November 16th."
