Gain the recognition your event deserves . . .

Each year, the International Festivals & Events Association recognizes outstanding accomplishments and top quality creative, promotional, operational and community outreach programs and materials produced by festivals and events around the world, with the IFEA/Haas & Wilkerson Pinnacle Awards Competition.

This prestigious awards competition strives for the highest degree of excellence in festival and event promotions and operations, and in doing so, has raised the standards and quality of the festivals and events industry to new levels. From events large or small, cities, festivals, chambers, universities, parks & recreation departments, vendors & suppliers, and everything in between, events and promotions of nearly every type and size will have the opportunity to be recognized, as entries are categories into organizations with similar sized budgets. From best Event Poster, T-Shirt, Hat, Promotional Brochure, Website, TV Promotion and Social Media site to best Volunteer Program, Environmental Program, Sponsor Follow-Up Report and Media Relations Campaign, there's a place for almost every element of your event to be recognized. The IFEA/Haas & Wilkerson Pinnacle Awards have provided many outstanding examples of how event producers can use innovation and creativity to achieve a higher level of success.

One of the goals of IFEA is to promote the professionalism of our members and the festivals and events industry as a whole. Therefore, to add further impact to winning organizations, the IFEA will provide your organization with a press release template for you to distribute to your media list explaining the award and the competition.
