Are You the Pick of the Litter? Welcome to the ONLY Animal Health Marketing Awards Competition

Let the world see and celebrate your outstanding work and contributions to keeping our furry, feathered and scaly friends healthy and happy!

The North American Veterinary Community, the world’s leading provider of veterinary continuing education, introduced the VETTY Awards® in 2017 to recognize and reward the marketing, advertising, public relations, digital, social, design, events, promotions and educational materials created on behalf of large and small animals, pet pharmaceuticals, foods, diagnostic equipment, professional associations, advocacy groups and more.

Just as the NAVC supports the advancement of veterinary medicine, we also recognize the dedication, passion and creativity from animal health marketing teams and agencies that distinguishes the profession we love.

The VETTY Awards® accepts submissions of work completed between January 1, 2022 and November 15, 2022.

We’ll shine the spotlight on the highest scoring winners during the NAVC’s annual VMX: Veterinary Meeting & Expo – the world’s largest gathering of veterinary professionals worldwide – January 14-18, 2023, in Orlando and on our website.
