The International ANDY Awards stands in its 53rd year as one of the most sought-after awards for creative excellence in advertising with a mission to recognize the contributions of individuals and companies who create the work and raise the standards of craftsmanship, creativity and celebrate the brave collaboration between agency and marketer partnerships. Judged by a hand-selected integrated jury of globally renowned creative leaders, awards are distinguished by vertical, craft and technique categories.
Produced by The ADVERTISING Club of New York, the ANDYs are one of the only not-for-profit award shows in the industry, with proceeds going directly to The ADVERTISING Club Foundation to fund its education and diversity initiatives to specifically promote workforce diversity.

O’Reilly Award, the title of the best PSA of the year and a donation of $10,000 directly to the charity the winning work was created to promote.
