NAVC announces VETTYs award winners

The North American Veterinary Communication announces animal health’s creative marketing award (VETTYs) winners at the 39th Annual Veterinary Meeting & Expo, VMX 2022

The winners of the VETTY Awards, the creative marketing competition dedicated to animal health advertising, design, digital, experiential and social marketing, were revealed this week at VMX 2022, presented by the North American Veterinary Community (NAVC).

The VETTYs competition is open to marketing campaigns for products and services that support the animal health community, including pharmaceuticals, pet foods, diagnostic equipment, professional associations, pet advocate organizations and more.

This year’s competition included entries from 2020 and 2021 after the 2020 VETTYs Award was put on hold due to COVID-19.

“There were so many wonderfully creative and inventive entries this year,” said NAVC CEO Gene O’Neill. “It’s inspiring to know that not even lockdowns or working remotely could dampen the community’s creative spark. Instead, these companies and agencies rose to the challenge and deserve tremendous accolades for achieving all they did.”

The competition featured several new categories dedicated to some of the marketing evolution that took place during the initial pandemic lockdown, including awards for virtual events.

The top prizes, including Best In Show (For-Profit), Best In Show (Non-Profit), Judges Awards, Large Animal Award and the NAVC Spotlight winner were announced live on-stage prior to the start of VMX’s traditional Monday concert presented by Merck Animal Health.
