Art Directors Club Announces Program for the ADC 92nd Annual Awards + Festival of Art and Craft in Advertising and Design

Three-Day Festival Celebrates the Art and Craft of the Industry With Keynote Oliviero Toscani and Other Leading Creative and Art Visionaries

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 01/28/13 -- The Art Directors Club (ADC), the first global creative collective of its kind and longest standing organization championing the visual arts, announced today the program for the global ADC 92nd Annual Awards + Festival of Art and Craft in Advertising and Design. The three-day festival will be based out of W South Beach in Miami Beach from April 2-4, 2013.

Unlike any other industry event, the ADC 92nd Annual Awards + Festival of Art and Craft in Advertising and Design inspires international advertising, design, and visual communications professionals to reconnect and recommit to the art and craft of their industries by inspiring their inner artist. The Festival will feature interactive, hands-on workshops led by key industry visionaries throughout each day, the ADC Design Night Celebration, the ADC 92nd Annual Awards Gala, parties and social gatherings throughout the week, and of course the beauty and culture that is South Beach.

"The ADC is recommitting to its roots: the art and craft of advertising and design, and this Festival is the epitome of our vision. Instead of listening to speakers, our Festival will feature interactive workshops where we'll learn, play and be inspired again in an environment designed for lots of networking," said Ignacio Oreamuno, Executive Director, ADC. "The unveiling of the 92nd Annual Awards winners will be done in a manner and magnitude that has never been done before."

Confirmed Festival Presenters are as follows:

Attendees should come prepared to be surprised, inspired, and turned-on by the commitment to art and craft celebrated at the ADC 92nd Annual Awards + Festival of Art and Craft in Advertising and Design. From laying bricks in South Beach to honing their design thinking and design leadership skills under the sun, festival attendees will not only gain inspiration, they will also gain a new perspective on themselves, their career and their industry.

The Festival 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 space within which the winners will receive their Cubes for achievement in art and craft in today's visual communications industries.

Entrants are eligible for best-in-show in Advertising, Design and Interactive categories, as well as cumulative awards for Design Team of the Year, Advertising Agency of the Year, Interactive Agency of the Year, Network of the Year and School of the Year, based on winning point totals for the year.

All-Inclusive Festival Passes include three complimentary nights of accommodations at one of Miami Beach's top hotels: W South Beach or Shore Club. In addition, passes allow for entrance to all of the workshops and daytime activities, the 92nd Annual Awards Gala and the ADC Design Night Celebration, not to mention all the parties.
