The AICP Show Announces Lineup of Global Ambassadors and Committees
In an announcement issued in New York, Matt Miller, president and CEO of AICP, and Ali Brown, president and executive producer at PRETTYBIRD and the 2020 Chairperson of the AICP Show: The Art and Technique of the Commercial, released the roster of the Show’s very first team of Global Ambassadors. Hailing from North America, South America, Europe and Asia-Pacific, these industry leaders have been heading up committees they’ve assembled that are tasked with educating the world about the AICP Award Shows and its reputation for judging work to the highest level of creative standards.
The move to accept entries from outside the US, introduced this year, puts The AICP Show on par with the other competitions that make up the AICP Awards – the AICP Next Awards (chaired this year by Tiffany Rolfe, US Chief Creative Officer at R/GA), and the AICP Post Awards (chaired by Chris Franklin, Editor/Owner of Big Sky).
These new global committees – as well as other entrants – have already made their voices heard. In response to their requests, The AICP Awards has extended its deadline to 18th Feb., 2020 at 11:59pm PST (with no late fee). If entrants need even more time, the final deadline will be 24th Feb. at 11:59pm PST (late fees will apply). Entries for all AICP Awards can be submitted here.

“Spain is going through a period of many political changes and general elections, despite that the advertising production industry remains to be the driver of the audio visual industry in our country,” says Adriana Piquet, director general of the APCP. “One of our missions in the Spanish Advertising Production Association is to sustain and improve the relationship with the public administrations to preserve this position of leadership and success that we have been growing these last few years, regardless what political party governs.”
Indeed, the estimated turnover of the advertising production sector in Spain has grown by 4% over the last two years, suggesting that political uncertainty doesn’t have to mean paralysis… Which will be reassuring for advertisers and production folk in the USA as they face an inevitably heated election in 2020.
