The awards celebration kicked off the first night of the ADC Festival of Art + Craft in Advertising and Design at The James Royal Palm in Miami Beach.
The Tomorrow Awards is the only international marketing and visual communications awards show with the mission of educating and discovering work that pushes the boundaries of creative innovation.

About the Tomorrow Awards
The Tomorrow Awards is an international award show dedicated to discovering, showcasing and awarding creativity that pushes the boundaries of technological innovation. Since the very best examples of such work are those that defy standard award show categories, the Tomorrow Awards is category-neutral; all entries are judged side by side and only the ideas that best reflect the future shine brightest. The first of its kind to invoke an inclusive industry judging structure on a global scale, the Tomorrow Awards employs a two-part judging process to arrive at its winners. The Tomorrow Awards proudly supports the mission of the ADC Global Network to Connect, Provoke and Elevate creative professionals in visual communications worldwide and the Let's Make the Industry 50/50 Initiative.
