For the second year, the 3% Movement and Athena Film Festival are joining forces for The Athena Advertising Awards, recognizing creative advertising that depicts strong, bold women from all walks of life. For nine years, The Athena Film Festival has showcased Academy Award-nominated films, top-tier narratives, documentaries, and shorts that celebrate the stories of remarkable, courageous women leaders. We are extending that celebration of women to the world’s most pervasive media: advertising. The Athena Advertising Awards honor creative advertising that depicts strong, bold women from all walks of life, recognizing marketing messages infused with ambition, moxie, courage, and resilience. Submissions open June 11 and will close on September 21, 2018.
