Bravery is the element that we attribute to the most forward creative thinking as it is both an ambition and a belief. In addition to our Redefining Series that highlights personal and shared truths, The ANDYs honor the collaboration between the brand marketer and their creative agency with the annual Brave Brands luncheon.  This event poignantly shines a light on the highest standard of creative/marketer collaboration which sets the bar for the industry.


As we stay true to our roots as an “idea” show, all mediums and forms of the craft carry equal weight though viewed through different lens including Craft, Reset/Innovation and Bravery. The elimination of categories allows the ANDYs to continue to act as a true barometer of the industry’s best. The unconfined nature of our model creates an equal playing field. “No categories” does not mean less chance to win, it means equal chance.


In the name of greater transparency and education, The ANDYs have reinvented an awards process that better serves the global community. By inviting everyone in the judging room, entrants receive real-time feedback on their work from top creative leaders in one integrated setting.
