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. All registered attendees for the Annual Conference vote for the SAMMY Award winner via an online gallery, and the winner is announced at the conclusion of the IMCA Showcase Awards Gala. Only one vote per attendee is counted, so be sure to register for the Annual Conference to cast your vote!
In the past, SAMMY Award candidates created a display that was shown at the Annual Conference.
The IMCA Innovation Torchbearer Award honored individuals, institutions, or companies that, over time, made significant contributions under the open category of "innovation."
