The International Andy Awards is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. The goal of the competition is to honour creativity in advertising throughout the world, recognise the contributions of individuals and companies who create the work and encourage raising the standards of craftsmanship in the industry. The International Andy Awards stands as one of the most sought-after awards for creative excellence in advertising. Judged by a jury comprised of internationally renowned creative directors, awards are given to both single and campaign executions, distinguished by product, service or technique category. The Andy’s began as a New York print only show that has evolved into an international show covering print, radio, television, out-of-home, direct mail, video/cinema, interactive and other media.

Andy Award winners also compete for the Andy’s highest honour, the Grandy. The Grandy winner, in addition to gaining prominence within the industry, receives a cash prize of $50,000. All Public Service Gold Andy winners are eligible for the Richard T O’Reilly Award (named in memory of the National Director of the Partnership for a Drug-Free America), the title of the best PSA of the year and a $10,000 cash prize.
