We’re Going to Miami! ADC 92nd Annual Awards + Festival of Art and Craft in Advertising and Design leaves New York for the first time.

After 91 years in New York City, it’s time for a little sunshine.

Executive Director of the ADC Ignacio Oreamuno and the ADC Awards Team are moving the 92nd Annual Awards + Festival of Art and Craft in Advertising and Design to Miami in April 2013.

The 3-day festival, centralized in Miami’s South Beach on April 2-4, 2013, will be based out of the W South Beach, the Shore Club and the New World Center. The festival will comprise hands-on, interactive, creative workshops throughout each day, parties at the W South Beach and the Shore Club by night, and the Annual Awards Gala celebration. The exact festival programming will be announced in coming months, so stay tuned to adcawards.org and the ADC Facebook and Twitter pages for more updates and information.

The Festival, the only beachside creative festival in the U.S., will culminate on Thursday evening, April 4, with the ADC 92nd Annual Awards Gala at the New World Center, home of the renowned New World Symphony. Designed by Frank Gehry, the New World Center boasts state-of-the-art technological capabilities and an inspirational artistic space within which the winners of the 92nd Annual Awards will receive their Cubes.

"New York is an amazing city and has been the home of the ADC Awards— the longest running in the world— for more than 90 years,” said Oreamuno. “To keep pace with our international growth, we are moving the Awards Gala to create the best creative festival in North America. No city in the U.S. is better suited for hosting and inspiring international creatives than Miami. The ADC is re-focusing on its core values—the art and craft in advertising and design— and our festival will be the only one to chose if you are a creative professional in any visual communications field around the world."

Festival pricing, including early bird specials, is now available. ADC will be offering payment plans for ADC members (so if you can’t pay all at once up-front, that’s okay. You can still go). Inquire at ariel@adcglobal.org for more information.

We want to see you in Miami!
