The International ANDY Awards now in its 37th year, was established in 1964 by the Ad Club of New York. The goal of the competition is to honor creativity in advertising throughout the world, recognize the contributions of individuals and companies who create the work and encourage raising the standards of craftsmanship in the industry.
Awards are given to both single and campaign executions, distinguished by product/service or technique category. The ANDYs began as a New York print only show that has evolved into an International show covering print, radio, television, out of home, direct mail, video/cinema, interactive and other media. Andy awards winners also compete for the ANDYs highest honor, the GRANDY. The GRANDY winner in addition to gaining prominence within the industry, receive a cash prize of $50,000.
