As a member of a proudly independent agency, there's no better feeling than having your best work acknowledged and rewarded by your industry peers and clients – not to mention the boost it gives agency morale and your new business efforts.

As we look to 2023 and the opportunity to grow on what was a fantastic 2022 Independent Agency Awards event. The Alliance of Independent Agencies found it fitting that a talented, boisterous, agile group of agencies should be represented by an equally talented, boisterous, agile industry festival. Our continued partnership with MAD//Fest will allow us to house the exceptional work from our agencies and give them the big stage that they deserve.

The awards will take place at MAD//Fest in July

The judging application process is now open and we’re looking to fill our judging roster with top agency & client personnel, and we want you involved. Your role will be to seek out the very best work created by independent agencies and make sure it gets celebrated.
