Vanguard Award Terms & Conditions

Awards should be fun. We’re organizing this to add positivity to the world, but our lawyers (and a bit of common sense) say that we should still add a few thoughts to the terms and conditions. So, here we go:

The Marketing Vanguard Awards (the “Awards”) is organized by 18squared Marketing, LLC, United States of America.

Except where indicated otherwise all copyright and other rights that subsist in the home page and in the sub-domain pages of the website (“the Site”) are owned by 18squared Marketing.
