The Ad Rodeo Association is the celebration of creative excellence in the Prairie provinces. Each year, Ad Rodeo provides creative professionals the opportunity to meet, talk, learn, mentor and celebrate what they do through several events that culminate in the Anvil Awards. The Anvil Awards represents the special talent and effort it takes to be recognized by your peers for creating the very best.

As a not-for-profit society, Ad Rodeo is administered by a volunteer Board of Directors and is devoted entirely to the development and support of industry members and young creatives. Partnerships with local and national sponsors allows us to promote mentorship and education through scholarships and facilitates internships at Calgary agencies.

While providing a benchmark for excellence, it is also one of the the vehicles in Calgary and western Canada to raise funds for NABS. With every successful event we are able to contribute funds to this vital organization that assists industry members through a variety of programs.
