The Envelope Please...

Have you ever wished there were an Academy Award® for “Best Credit Union”? Us too. That’s why the Marketing Association of Credit Unions (MAC) created the MAC Awards back in 1986—so we could celebrate the great work of marketers like you (and put on our best duds). And while we’re (always) ready to celebrate, we don’t judge: We leave that to marketing, advertising, media, and social media experts—from both inside and outside the financial industry—and make them do it for us.

In 2020 we’ll be celebrating our fellow Credit Union marketers virtually, date TBD in Denver.

Each entry has a chance at pulling in not only a MAC Award but our exclusive MACQUEE Best of Show Award (no…it’s not an acronym, we just like our caps lock). The only top honor where participants are on stage presenting their work, followed by live on-line judging with results hermetically sealed in a mayonnaise jar until opened during the MAC Awards celebration that evening!

The judges for all other entries are marketing, advertising, media and social media experts from both inside and outside the financial industry. In other words…you win an award here…you should be asking for a raise when you take home the hardware!

There’s More than One Way to Win a MAC!
Everyone here at MAC recognizes that solid and successful credit union marketing is more than a gorgeous logo or pitch-perfect radio spot, and our diverse range of award categories reflects that. Check out our full list of categories and judging criteria to see if you’ve got the right stuff for!
