The NAMM Excellence Award for Music in Advertising is part of NAMM's ongoing mission to promote the benefits and pleasures of making music. The first-, second-, and third-place trophies are actual musical instruments – ukuleles -- that have been customized with the NAMM logo and eye-catching artwork by California-artist Tyler Warren.
