2014 ANVIL AWARDSWe are excited to announce the theme for our 2014 Anvil Awards, being hosted on April 4 at the Jack Singer Concert Hall.
Advertising marks the intersection of art and science. There’s no other industry where the two seemingly disparate worlds of art and science must co-exist and collaborate on such an intimate level. Every day artists and technologists work diligently to blur the line between the two sides of our industry to extinction. The era of art and copy is over, and we are proud to usher in the era of art and science.
As a theme for this year’s Anvil Awards, Art & Science reflects the Ad Rodeo’s mandate to not only celebrate the work, but to include all the people and disciplines that come together to create it. Here’s to art, science and all the incredible things that happen when the two come together.
Tickets will be going on sale shortly. Stay tuned!
A Letter From the PresidentThe Ad Rodeo was due for a shake up. Not a minor “Let’s serve chicken instead of beef at the gala this year” kind of shake up, but a “Let’s blow this thing up and start over” kind of change. And as the new President of the Ad Rodeo, I’m happy to report the Board of Directors was ready and willing to do just that.
The changes you see this year will be driven by a new mandate adopted by the Board to direct our focus back to where it should be – the work and the community we serve. This mandate, listed below, was crafted with input and suggestions from conversations with a number of industry leaders.
Over the coming weeks, you’ll see a more communications from the Ad Rodeo as we start sharing specific changes and plans for the year ahead.
This year the Ad Rodeo Board is being directed by five main objectives. These are presented in order of importance:
