The MAX Awards (Marketing Awards for Excellence) recognize the creative genius of marketers and marketing in Georgia.
Presented by Robinson’s Department of Marketing, the MAX Awards program is considered the most prestigious marketing awards event in Georgia. The awards honor the best in new products, services and ways to market developed in a designated calendar year. Entries are judged on the criteria of innovation, great marketing support and marketplace success. A portion of the proceeds from entry fees and the event are used to support an Outstanding Minority Marketing Student Scholarship Fund.
The MAX Awards are judged by the Georgia State Marketing RoundTable, a group of Atlanta’s top marketing executives.
