The Adfamous Award Show

To avoid the paparazzi, this year’s entries are 100% digital.
At your leisure, view the abridged professional and student category PDFs.

Haven’t you heard? Everybody who’s anybody is going to be there. That’s right. Glitzier than the Grammys, more ostentatious than the Oscars – the Adfamous Award Show is your shot at being famous for at least an evening in March. Maybe forever, if you’re lucky and likeable.

Review the official rules here. Or don’t. What’s fame without a little scandal?

VIP sneak peek

Those vultures! Due to particularly unruly paparazzi, this year’s preview night can be enjoyed only from the comfort of your condo. Come back at 6pm on Wednesday, February 17, to start scoping out your competition.
