NYF’s Advisory Board, formed immediately after the 2018 Executive Jury judging sessions, pulls from a brain trust of creative leaders representing 5 continents. Their sage advice and industry expertise were influential in improving the overall competition and they will provide wise counsel throughout the year.
Creating amazing work may be its own reward. Having your work seen and recognized by the global creative community is inspiring, encouraging and energizing. Nice fuel for your next project.
New York Festivals Advertising Awards are a simple way of telling clients and vendors that you are not interchangeable, that there is a standard of excellence in which quality and passion matter. It’s a reminder that the agencies who represent these values are truly the ones you want working for you and the ones you want to work for.

With a background in advertising that goes back to the days of Madison Avenue’s golden years, Michael has witnessed the evolution of the industry and has an archive of the some of the most memorable campaigns from the early days of TV advertising to prove it.
The coveted 2018 Best of Show Award was awarded to “Fearless Girl” McCann New York for client State Street Global Advisors’ SHE fund: an investment fund for companies with more women in leadership.

People across the world emulated her stance as an expression of personal empowerment. “Fearless Girl” was in the winner’s circle taking home 3 Grand Trophies and an impressive 9 First Prize Awards.
