“We have a new gala location in the heart of the Funk Zone, we have upgraded your trophies and we are ready to celebrate the best of the best in the advertising industry!
View the competition entries, create new contacts and don’t forget to strike a pose on the red carpet. Enjoy a glass of Fox wine, a variety of Firestone ales and savory appetizers from C’est Cheese before honoring the best creative the Central Coast has to offer. We will be announcing the Gold, Silver, and Bronze ADDY winners. We’ve also kept the tradition going by congratulating the Best in Show, and we encourage you to cast your vote for the People’s Choice award.
Your winning doesn’t end with the awards ceremony….Monte Carlo Casino night will begin!
