Half a century ago, local ad folks had the idea for a gala affair that would celebrate the absolute best the industry had to offer. Work that would excite, enlighten and inspire all ad workers to raise their glasses in appreciation, then raise their game to try and outdo what they saw.

Of course, raising that ol’ bar is never easy. Lots of things get in the way. Less-than-ideal timelines, budgets, strategies, executions. But then, you’ve had 50 years to practice. So no excuses. Time to show us what you got. Early Bird pricing kicks off December 1, deadline is January 11, the big show is February 24.

Go ahead and enter. You’ve got everything to gain — fame, fortune, the grudging admiration of your peers — and nothing to lose. Because remember: Even if you don’t quite raise the bar, you can always find one to visit afterwards.
