CREATE A MORE EQUITABLE FUTURE
FOR SPORTS, MEDIA & ENTERTAINMENT

MEET OUR PARTNERS

Launched in 2013, Canva is a free online visual communications platform with a mission to empower everyone in the world to design. Featuring a simple drag-and-drop user interface and a vast range of templates ranging from presentations, social media graphics, posters, apparel to videos, plus a huge library of fonts, stock photography, illustrations, video footage, and audio clips, anyone can take an idea and create something beautiful. In sport, speed and precision are everything—whether competing in the middle of a field, or in the boardroom for sponsorships. Canva helps you create, manage, and deliver content with unmatched speed, ease, and brand consistency. As the title sponsor of both the Summit and recognition program, Canva looks forward to continuing their commitment to spotlighting and supporting diverse content creators around the globe.

State Farm Arena and the Atlanta Hawks will serve as the official venue partner for the 2021 Creators United Summit in September, an event hosting Creators of Color honorees, mentors, and engagement experts representing the best of The Hashtag Sports Awards.
