The IAA is primarily a people organisation and our Awards celebrate individuals within the marketing communications community and their contribution to IAA. Those who have inspired, led by example and served the industry with vision, passion, energy and committed action, locally, regionally and globally.
The IAA Compass Awards were created to celebrate leadership excellence, demonstrated by the members of the marketing communications industry and the IAA global family. To honor their commitment to driving excellence in communications as well as their contribution to the worldwide advancement of the International Advertising Association.
5 that honour our Members and Chapters, the sixth, the Golden Compass award – honors an (external) industry leader for their exceptional achievement in international advertising and marketing.
The IAA Compass Awards are usually presented at the World Congress (biennially) or a global (annual) flagship event.
