While we love celebrating rising stars, we can’t forget about the professionals who paved the way for those entering the industry.

The Campaign US 40 Over 40 Awards will honor executives for their noteworthy contributions across advertising, marketing, media, technology and communications – from groundbreaking creative work and head-turning innovations to outside-of-the-box thinking and award-winning campaigns. In the past, Campaign US’ 40 Over 40 was dedicated to digital professionals, but we’ve now opened it up to laud the most talented and accomplished individuals transforming all of adland.

Nominations will be judged by a panel consisting of the Campaign editorial team as well as decorated industry leaders, to be revealed in August 2020.

To be eligible, a nominee must work in advertising, media, public relations, marketing or design, be based in the US or Canada, and have turned 40 on or before May 6th, 2020. Deadlne for entries is June 19th, 2020. Honorees will be named in August 2020 in a Campaign US online feature.
