Carol H. Williams Advertising (CHWA), the longest-running independent multi-cultural marketing shop in the country, and AdVenture Media, one of New York’s fastest growing digital agencies, join forces with New York Festivals® Bowery Awards to honor the 2020 competition winners.
The Carol H. Williams ‘Together for Better Award’ is a new category that accepts work from each of the Bowery Awards category groups and honors campaigns that promote unity and diversity. Advertising icon and Hall of Famer, Carol H. Williams will judge the “Together For Better” creative entries and select the winner who will receive this prestigious award.
“Along with our collaborators and sponsor, Fiverr and AdVenture Media, we're incredibly honored to announce that Advertising Hall of Famer and Bowery Executive Jury member, Carol H. Williams will be selecting the winning work from this category,” said Scott Rose, Executive Director, New York Festivals The Bowery Awards.
"Powerful narratives are the shaping force in our lives and thereby creates empathy and motivates action at their most profound level. Narratives that ignite and nurture passions within us, envision new possibilities, develop confidence, and inspire us to overcome any obstacles that we face in making what was once unimaginable, imaginable."—Carol H. Williams, Owner, President, CEO & Chief Creative Officer, Carol H. Williams Advertising and Bowery Awards Executive Jury
AdVenture Media, sponsor of the Bowery Awards, has donated a dedicated amount of prize money to Bowery’s Grand Award-winning free-lancers and independent creatives. Prize money will be used to run a paid advertising campaign on behalf of the Grand winners within each category group.
“I'm incredibly honored that the Bowery Awards is giving our agency the opportunity to be a part of this wonderful event,” said Isaac Rudansky, Founder and CEO of AdVenture Media. “Few freelancers have the skills, budget, and know-how to profitably advertise their services. It's not a skill they've typically developed. Harder still, paid advertising is ruthlessly competitive. All of us at AdVenture Media felt that the “prize” we offered is more than a prize, AdVenture Media will use its experience, relationships, and data to get the winning freelancers more business.”
The 2020 Bowery Awards Executive Jury will honor the top scoring entry in each category with a Grand Award in the following category groups Audio, Motion Video, Design, Quarantine Content, Made on Fiverr and the Carol H. Williams “Together For Better’ Awards. Entrants earning a Bowery Award Grand Prize will receive a trio of prizes: a customized trophy, an accelerated path to FiverrPro, and $1000 dollars in AdVenture Media services.
