The coveted SAMMY Award is all about peer recognition and is given to the entry voted to be the best overall work among all of the IMCA Showcase Award of Excellence and Best of Show winners on display at the Annual Conference. All registered attendees present at the Annual Conference vote for the SAMMY Award winner during the conference, and the winner is announced at the conclusion of the IMCA Showcase Awards Gala. Only one vote per attendee is counted, so be sure you’re at the Annual Conference to cast your vote!
The 2017 Showcase Awards Gala will take place on Tuesday, June 27, 2017, at The Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch in Scottsdale, AZ. To register for the Annual Conference or Gala, see the Annual Conference page.
Annual Conference Displays
In the past, SAMMY Award candidates created an easel that was displayed at the Annual Conference. Conference attendees cast their vote for the SAMMY Award based on these easel displays.
Just like in 2016, easels will no longer be required as the medium used to display the winning entries. Now award winners will be allotted a blank space (on a table) to be filled in any fashion they choose (certain restrictions apply). Please see our 2017 SAMMY Award Display Guidelines with additional details.
