MerComm’s annual ASTRID Awards is the only awards program in the world that is truly independent. The ASTRID Awards accept no advertising, membership dues, or outside sponsorship, thereby guaranteeing fairness and impartial judging.

Winning an ASTRID Award is confirmation of quality bestowed by peers in the field, and recognized internationally by clients and management.
