The ESA Excellence Awards are the only recognition of excellence within the sponsorship industry across Europe. They celebrate campaigns in all sectors - sport, culture, entertainment, media and corporate responsibility.

The 2013 Awards Ceremony and Dinner was held in London at Plaisterers’ Hall on 29th January 2014.

The ESA Excellence Awards is under the patronage of Mrs Androulla Vassiliou, Member of the European Commission. Now in its seventh year, the Awards attract entries from those working in marketing from across Europe. Sponsorship campaigns focus on business success, consumer or employee engagement and community projects. They vary in size from large national or multi-national campaigns to more modest, low-budget sponsorships. The Awards also cover specific targeting of an audience using a particular media platform - whether that be traditional or social.

An ESA member Professional Development trophy is also awarded to recognise companies that have shown the most commitment to developing their staff through training and education.

The Awards Ceremony culminated in the Best of Europe Award which saw 2013 national sponsorship award winners from different countries competing against each other.
