Awards Information

Welcome to the STAR Awards!

The Mutual Fund Education Alliance (MFEA) is proud to celebrate more than two decades of honoring communication leaders in the mutual fund industry through the STAR Awards. View past participants.


The STAR Awards program was designed to honor the fund industry for its extraordinary efforts to communicate with and market to investors in ways that support shareholders and investment goals. Whether you’re a returning entrant or this is your first year participating, we’re pleased to have you join this prestigious industry-wide awards program.

Through MFEA’s 2017 STAR Awards, fund firms have the opportunity to earn recognition in more than 35 categories. Non-mutual fund companies can submit entries on behalf of a mutual fund firm (i.e. agencies, firms that have mutual fund clients). The program stands as the only competition of its kind, judged by industry professionals, and recognized by the media as an important barometer of excellence. Participants will receive an evaluation scorecard for every entry, providing valuable information teams can use to assess their communications efforts.

The STAR Awards ceremony will take place on Wednesday, October 25, 2017, at the J.W. Marriott hotel in Chicago.
