The ADCOLOR® Awards, now in its seventh year, is a program that honors outstanding diverse professionals at the junior, mid and senior levels in each segment of the advertising, marketing and media industries. This is your best chance as an artist to get in front of the influential players in the industries that make decisions on TV commercials, webisodes and other ad platforms where your music could receive mass exposure.

All of the music in the compilation will be featured throughout the conference and awards show, and will be utilized for background music, introducing award categories and for transitional cues. Each artist will also have a featured page in the AdMusic™ booklet, including artists’ specific information and photos. This booklet is delivered directly into the hands of select industry influencers in music, media and advertising..

Additional AdMusic™ booklets may be given away at events related to the awards show thereafter. On top of that, artists will be profiled with a dedicated page on the ADCOLOR.org website. The artist's music, EPK, website and other information will be highlighted on this page to bring extra exposure to the selected acts. Artists may receive direct feedback on their music from industry influencers.

Songs should relate to the idea of "As you rise up, reach back," "paying it back," "paying it forward," working hard, fulfilling a dream, self-improvement and anything else that is generally inspirational and positive. All genres are accepted.
