Each year the Web Marketing Association's IAC Award Competition names the Best University Ad. The winners are selected by judging the entered creative using seven criteria - design, ease of use, copywriting, interactivity, use of technology, innovation and content. Entries not selected as best University Ad are also eligible for an Outstanding Advertising Award.
