The DMA Knights Awards program, instituted in the year 2014, is to commemorate the selfless & significant contributions by the DMA 2012 Annual Co-chairperson Winnifred Knight and Hall of Fame Inductee in 2013. The award celebrates the unyielding contributions of Ms. Knight and others towards the progress and advancement of the marketing fraternity.

The award also aims to serve as an inspiration for the current and future generations of marketers to realize responsibility and step forward for the larger good.

This prestigious award will commemorate such marketers who put in their genuine and altruistic efforts towards keeping the marketing fraternity united and updated through the medium of DMAi.

Every year, the DMAi assembles a Selection Board of notable marketers and entrepreneurs to select inductees nominated by their contemporaries and other community members, into the Knights of the DMAi program.

-The Selection Board is chaired by Ms. Winnifred Knight (DMAi Hall of Fame Inductee & Co-Chair, DMA 2012 Convention).
-The Board selects up to 4 individuals and nominates them for review by the DMAi Board of Directors & Board of Governors.
-The award may be bestowed upon at the discretion of the DMAi Executive Committee for significant accomplishments in the past or at present.
