The Davey Awards are the largest and most prestigious awards competition exclusively for the “Davids” of creativity.  David defeated the giant Goliath with a big idea and a little rock. The annual International Davey Awards honors the achievements of the “Creative Davids” who derive their strength from big ideas, rather than stratospheric budgets.

Prominent organizations that also competed to receive the acclaimed honor included AP News, Microsoft, National Geographic, República, and Newsy, to name a few.
