The 2021 Gem Awards are going all-digital this year.
Enter this year’s Gem Awards and find out how your creative work stacks up against Eastern Idaho’s best.
To address current health concerns, we’re switching things up to be more socially distant. All entries will be submitted via email and download links – no envelopes and jump drives this year.
Deadline for entry is 5 p.m. Feb. 5. If you want to save some cash and hit the early-bird deadline, it’s 5 p.m. Jan. 22. Winners will advance to the Idaho Ad Fed’s Rockies Awards in Boise, and are eligible to go as far as the national Addy awards if they win successive levels of competition.
Students, follow the same entry procedures as professionals, but be sure to note that you’re a student in your entry email message.
If you have questions, email Gem Awards Director, firstname.lastname@example.org.

Come celebrate the creative that blew them away, and find out who killed it in 2018.
We would like to invite you to this spectacular once a year event where we see the many talents that our fellow creatives in South East Idaho have created in 2018. It is time to honor the hard work that they have put forth and show our appreciation what what they do. Come and join us for dinner, networking and a ceremony where we will announce who killed it this year. Come dressed up like you are in the mob.
