This past April, The AD Club had the privilege of gathering together some of the brightest and most innovative creative minds in advertising under one roof in New York City to honor their remarkable achievements in the industry. The celebration awarded the most inventive, engaging and provocative work from the past year as well as from the past five decades in a special anniversary edition. To honor the 50th, The ANDYs introduced the Bravery Awards to showcase those, both past and present, who have taken a stand to develop courageous marketing strategies, which truly push boundaries and fuel new avenues for creativity.
The ANDYs honored some of the most esteemed advertising icons of all time, including Lee Clow, Chairman and Global Director of TBWA\Worldwide; Dan Wieden, Co-founder of Wieden + Kennedy; Bob Greenberg, Founder, Chairman and CEO of R/GA; Sir John Hegarty, Founding creative partner of BBH London; Rich Silverstein, Co-Chairman/Partner, Goodby Silverstein & Partners; Jeff Goodby, Co-Chairman/Partner, Goodby Silverstein & Partners; Mary Wells Lawrence, founder, Wells Rich Greene; and David Abbott, founder, AMV BBDO, throughout the evening. In keeping with the night’s theme, these eminent advertising figures called upon new and emerging talent within the industry to be truly brave in their endeavors and take every opportunity to shake up traditional methods.
Congratulations and thank you to all of the award winners, members of the jury, sponsors and guests who made the night truly spectacular!
