ICAC, The Intercontinental Advertising Cup was established in 2007 by organizers of the world’s three biggest regional advertising festivals: Asia Pacific’s ADFEST, Ibero-American FIAP and New European Golden Drum. From the first year onwards the ADC*E, Art Director’s Club of Europe, is also a member.
The mission of THE CUP is the affirmation of locally inspired creativity. The purpose of THE CUP is not competition with any other advertising show, but a very new international concept that makes it possible for local creativity to be judged on a global scale by its local merit. It is a natural extension of local festivals with regional judges, who recognize the quality of local creativity and bring a fresh perspective to global judging.
