Creative 0 Add to collection

LA's premier trade association partnered with AT&T AdWorks and Facebook to introduce ‘The Power of Us’ and showcase the work of advertising’s greatest minds

ThinkLA 2018 IDEA Awards Announces Winners
More than 1,000 of Los Angeles’ biggest thinkers in advertising gathered in the Beverly Hilton International Ballroom for the eighth annual ThinkLA IDEA Awards Gala last night to celebrate advertising’s greatest people, work, and companies in the region in 2017. 
 
Supporting sponsors AT&T AdWorks and Facebook set the tone with an elegant party atmosphere. The awards, which recognised Southern California’s most illuminated creative and tech-savvy brains, was produced by ThinkLA, the nonprofit organisation dedicated to empowering Los Angeles’ media, marketing, and advertising communities. 
 
Other sponsors included Twitter, BuzzFeed, Foursquare, Spotify, Tremor Video DSP, Conversant, imgur, Simpli.fi, Rhythm One, loop me, and Acast; and partners Defy Media, V3 Printing, Rapport, Liquid, and VIMBY. 
 
The evening’s events included a cocktail reception and dinner followed by the awards show and after-party on the Beverly Hilton pool deck. 
 
During the gala, host Paul Ollinger and other presenters bestowed agencies, brands, and individuals with achievement awards for the best annual campaigns, companies, and professionals in their fields. Submissions, which were produced by and/or for Southern California-based companies and launched in the 2017 calendar year, were judged by key advertising, brand, and tech executives outside of the L.A. market.  
 
The sold-out event is recapped with photos, and a video will be produced in the coming week
