The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) announced its Media Awards in Advertising nominees yesterday. This is the second year that GLAAD will celebrate inclusive advertisers.
The award categories include TV LGBT market, print and outdoor, print campaign in LGBT markets, interactive and social media campaigns. Nominees include Absolut Vodka, Levi Strauss, Progressive Insurance and Wells Fargo.
"We celebrate this year's nominees and special honorees for their inclusive work," GLAAD President Jarrett Barrios said in a press release. "However, this year we witnessed a decline in the number of inclusive advertisements in mainstream media, and as our community continues to strive for visibility, the advertising industry should take note."
The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony in New York City on Sept. 29. This year’s awards coincide with Advertising Week, a coming together of advertising and marketing professionals across North America.
The ceremony will be hosted by Bryan Batt from AMC’s “Mad Men.” Bethenny Frankel, from Bravo's “The Real Housewives of New York City,” will present the awards to the recipients.
