The North American Veterinary Community (NAVC) announced The VETTY Awards, the marketing competition dedicated to animal health, is returning after being postponed last year due to the impact of COVID-19.

The world’s leading provider of veterinary education, the NAVC, introduced the VETTY Awards in 2017. The competition recognizes and rewards 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.

The VETTY’s eligibility has been expanded this year to include all work produced between January 1, 2020 through December 31, 2021. Several new categories dedicated to the digital and virtual experiences that have become increasingly popular over the last two years have also been added.

Gold, silver and bronze winners will be unveiled at the NAVC’s annual Veterinary Meeting & Expo (VMX) 2022, which runs January 15-19, 2022 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL and everywhere virtually. Each year the Vetty Awards attract thousands of veterinary professionals from around the globe. The Best of Show, Judge’s Awards and NAVC Spotlight winner will be revealed live on-stage before VMX’s traditional Monday night concert.

“The VETTYs have become a signature part of VMX, and something so many of our exhibitors and attendees look forward to each year,” said NAVC CEO Gene O’Neill. “We’re really excited to announce this year’s competition, and can’t wait to reward all of the amazing work that’s been produced in these extraordinary times.”
