Today, the TIVA-DC Peer Awards continues to celebrate local excellence in media and offer one of the most sought-after awards in our community.
The 2018 Peer Awards Ceremony was held at the NATIONAL PRESS CLUB on Saturday, November 17, 2018, with an extended reception/networking hour, starting at 6:30 pm.
The TIVA-DC Peer Awards is a merit-based award judged solely on the individual merits of the entry. This is not a competition, rather an acknowledgment and celebration of exceptional quality work created by professionals and non-professionals in the Washington, DC, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania or Delaware region.

A panel of distinguished judges are selected on a volunteer basis based on stringent standards that include relevant background, demonstrated expertise and established standing in a category field for which an industry expert is judging. Judges are drawn from industry professionals in the Washington, DC, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania and Delaware region.
Entries are carefully judged on the following criteria and are handled through a carefully guided process in order to ensure consistency, critical thinking and informed peer review which results in a well earned award of merit and excellence in achievement:
