I'd like to thank the acADemy

As advertisers we love to see awesome campaigns. One of my favorite methods is through print. Here are some really creative ads from last year as well as this years winners from the 2009 Clios 

Now for those of you who don't know what the Clio's are, the Clio Awards are like Oscars for creative brilliance in advertising and design. The only difference being they do things Olymic style with the different colors. 

The categories for said awards are TV, Print, Outdoor, Radio, Integrated Campaign, Innovative Media, Design, Internet (or what they deem interactive), Content & Contact, and Student work.

I hope that last part caught your eye. YES student work. I don't know about you, but the idea of winning a Clio before you graduate is amazing. I was taking a look at most of the entries an almost off of them came of Miami Ad School and School for Visual Arts both of which Caylee mentioned a couple weeks ago. I ordered their course catalogs and even in their advertising to entry students mention the possibility that they can win a Clio, a D&AD Pencil, a Cannes Lion, a Golden Pencil from the One Show, not to mention a bunch of others. As an Ad student, I didn't even know there were that many awards for us to win. 

Here is an example of an awesome poster someone at SVA NY made check it: 

This, in case you weren't scared before, is our competition people! All I have to say is WOW. acADemia can only take you so far, the rest is up to you.
