Recognizing the Best in Alcohol Marketing

Our 35th annual Advertising & Promotion Awards celebrate the best design and execution of branded content in the beverage alcohol industry. These are the marketing efforts that most effectively and creatively earned the attention of consumers, distributors and trade members during the last year.

The entries were judged by editorial staff from Beverage Dynamics and Cheers magazines, selecting the most-impressive campaigns. Winners in 2019 included beer, wine and spirit brands with successful digital, physical and event marketing campaigns.

If you’re a marketing or advertising agency in the beverage alcohol industry and you don’t see your brands represented, check out the March/April 2020 issue of Beverage Dynamics for details on how to enter next year’s competition. To everyone who entered in 2019, we salute your creativity and thank you for participating in the Advertising & Promotion Awards.
