The International ANDY Awards
As one of the most sought-after awards for creative excellence in advertising The ANDYs honor creativity in advertising with bravery at its core. The global competition exists to recognize the collaboration of creatives and marketers alike who raise the standards of craftsmanship in the industry, while remaining a true industry barometer, connector and archivist.
- The ANDYs Jury is one integrated council representing the highest level of creative talent across continents and disciplines. For many of those invited the Judging experience is unlike any other because of the authenticity and pure process of full immersion into the work and discussions around it.
- The week is filled with peer to peer connections and the results are both intimate and unique, much like the show itself. Some highlights include; students have been hired after a juror has been touched by their work, countless socially-conscious donations have been made in the name of creativity and initiatives such as Creative Spirit U.S.
- What makes some of the creative leaders of our industry legends? What or who inspired them to pursue the career they did? What inspires them today? And how do they inspire those around them to think differently? These are the questions that Inspiration illustrates.
- Created by Rick Boyko, Former Co-President, Chief Creative Officer, Ogilvy & Mather North America; Former Director/Professor, VCU Brandcenter in partnership with The ADVERTISING Club of New York & International ANDY Awards for educational purposes only at this time.
- In its 54th year, The ANDYs decided to open up the judging room in the name of transparency and education. The community was able to observe and learn from the deliberation over the best ideas of the year, and future jurors could garner key insights on how work was identified and curated.
We will continue to offer our industry, and those interested in working in it, greater insight as to what creative leaders are really searching for in standout work. A number of our live jurors will also be speaking across industry tentpole events about their learnings and experiences from this industry-first.
- The Redefining Series continues to bring inspirational content and a shared experience through personal storytelling. These talks allow a peek into the industry’s most respected creatives and marketers to what inspires them, what moves them, and what they credit their successes to.
- As part of the mission to highlight shared truths and the fact that courage takes many forms, Redefining aims to empower individuals to believe in and create brave ideas.
