Call for Entries: The Show 2024

It’s time to submit your life-changing creative and design pieces! Entries for The Show 2024 are now open. Find all the info you need from our official call for entries, available here. Then visit the AdFed Minnesota competition page to submit your work. And mark your calendars for 7pm on Friday, March 1 at Orchestra Hall!

AdFed board members stand on the stage of Orchestra Hall, presenting awards at The Show 2023.

For nearly a century, AdFed has braved the bitter end of winter to bring people together for The Show—an annual night of networking, food and drink, and celebration of the Minnesota advertising community’s many achievements in creativity.

Nearly anyone who makes or produces creative work in the Minnesota advertising and marketing communities can submit work to The Show—in-house marketing teams, global ad agencies, marketing and advertising students, and more. A panel of judges from across the United States, all accomplished ad-industry creative professionals, critique the hundreds upon hundreds of entries.

And if you win? Plan to enjoy public recognition at the event, a shiny pin-shaped award and, of course, unlimited glory. Additionally, your winning submissions may be eligible to compete in the regional or national level of the American Advertising Awards.
