On the evening of August 18, the Australasian Writers and Art Directors Association (AWARD) will host an industry cocktail reception to announce the winners of some of its most prestigious creative awards of the year.
The first AWARD Pencil Bar, a bespoke cocktail, will take place as part of This Way Up, AWARD’s signature creative festival taking place in Sydney from August 16-18.
Cocktails and canapes will be on the menu and live entertainment will be ready as AWARD announces the winners of the special categories of the 43rd AWARD awards as well as the AWARD school’s top national student for 2022 – chosen from an exceptional pool promising creative talents.
Special awards presented during the evening include Grand Award, Strategic Leap, Individual Agency of the Year, Individual Creative or Team of the Year, Individual Director of the Year, Emerging Director of of the Year, Emerging Creative or Team of the Year and Emerging Indigenous Creative Talent (see finalists here).
“This is the celebration we’ve been striving for for the past few years,” said AWARD President Cam Blackley. “This Way Up’s AWARD pencil bar is the first time we’ve celebrated and rewarded the next generation of creative talent alongside the winners of some of the most prestigious creative awards of the year.
“It’s also an opportunity to bring together the creative community, rub shoulders with the festival’s lineup of industry innovators and make the most of a fantastic space at The Ovolo at Woolloomooloo.
“It will be an evening not to be missed in the program of the This Way Up festival. Grab a ticket, we hope to see everyone there.
