NYF’s Bowery Awards has announced its finalists. Winners will be announced in late November.
Entries were submitted from 31 countries in Audio/Radio, Film Craft/Motion Video, Design, and Quarantine Content. 229 were selected as finalists by the Grand Jury.
“We were thrilled with the response to the inaugural Bowery Awards and the extraordinary calibre of the submissions,” stated Scott Rose, executive director of The Bowery Awards. “This first year of the Bowery Awards received submissions from a robust number of countries around the world, some which typically do not enter. The goal of the competition was to shine the spotlight on freelancers and put their work in front of a world-class jury that includes Advertising Hall of Famers, founders, artists, movie producers and others recruited from a wide cross-section of creative fields.”
2020’s Bowery Awards entries are judged by two multi-disciplinary juries, the Grand Jury and the Executive Jury. All entries achieving finalist status were selected by the Grand Jury. Finalist entries then progress to the medal round. The Bowery Awards Executive Jury will determine the Gold, Silver, and Bronze winners as well as Grand Award winners and Best of Show.
Advertising Hall of Fame recipient and executive jury member, Carol H. Williams, president, chief executive officer & chief creative officer, Carol H. Williams Advertising, will review all of the Together For Better work and select its winner. This special category accepts work in each category group that promotes unity
“The Bowery is infamous for being a hotbed of creativity and culture. A place where mavericks and free thinkers met, collaborated, and developed work that would eventually escape the city streets and influence the world. Honouring that spirit, The Bowery Awards is a competition for today’s creatives working independently in the commercial landscape. Because of the Bowery Awards statement, I was honoured to lend my name to such a special award,” she stated.
The Bowery Awards Grand Prize winners will receive a customised trophy, expedited vetting process for FIVERR PRO and $1000 dollars in AdVenture Media Group services. All Bowery Awards winners selected by the 2020 jury panels will be displayed on a curated winner’s gallery on the Bowery Awards website that will include contact information allowing companies, clients, and representatives to contact the independent creators’ whose work resonates with their needs.
All proceeds from the 2020 Bowery Awards were donated to Feed the Frontlines NYC.
