And now we wait.
Earlier this month, we wrangled some of the biggest names in the ad biz to fly out and judge our hundreds of American Advertising Awards submissions. Over a full weekend, they poured over some of the most amazing work we've seen so far and gave their brutally honest critiques on what the area's brightest had to offer.
Check out some of our pics from the weekend and join us on March 5 to see who they've deemed the best in advertising in our region.
Special thanks to our judges: Kat Gordon, Mike Roe, Howie Ronay, Jon Ruby and Emily Starolis.
