The AICP Show, The Art & Technique of the American Commercial, is more than just an awards show judging the best work of the year. It's an ongoing archival project with cultural and artistic significance. Since the Show's inception in 1992, the honored work is included in the archives of the Film Department at The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), in New York. The Show is judged by close to 400 advertising and production professionals, and is assembled by a curatorial panel of prominent industry leaders.

The AICP Next Awards recognize outstanding work and the creative forces behind it, but are much more than an awards competition - it is a platform for thought leadership and analysis by those pushing boundaries and raising the bar higher on marketing content. The honored campaigns and single executions are on the leading edge of harnessing all types of media and technology to communicate the marketer's message.  All work for the Next categories must be for a client and may be produced and aired globally.
