ALL ADVERTISING, not just advertising made for or by women. The Gerety Awards, the only creative prize to reward the best in advertising from the female vision, boasts a jury for 2022 that includes some of the most respected leaders from the advertising and marketing world.
“Past winners are a testament to the Gerety juries: from this year’s Grand Prix, Festive for Burberry to the Moldy Whopper from 2020” says Lucía Ongay, Gerety Awards, Co-Founder. “Empowering work is also rewarded like Viva La Vulva, the Grand Prix winner from 2019, and it would be fair to say there is no jury more qualified to impress than Gerety when it comes to recognizing such work.”

About The Gerety Awards
Named for Frances Gerety, the copywriter who in 1948 coined the slogan "A diamond is forever”.
The Gerety Awards marks the first time that a jury has been brought together to select the best in advertising — all advertising, not just advertising made for women — through the female lens, creating a benchmark that is relevant to the market reality, all while redefining the standard to which advertising has traditionally been held.
