The coveted AdNews Advertising Hall of Fame welcomes a new inductee every year. These notable, and often divisive, personalities have influenced the direction of the industry and helped put Australia on the world stage through outstanding, innovative advertising.

Last year it was BMF co-founder Warren Brown. Previously it's honoured David Droga, Scott Whybin, Sean Cummins, Robert Morgan, Harold Mitchell, David Mattingly, Peter Clemenger and more. You can find the full list here and read profiles of legendary advertising figures including Campaign Palace founder Lionel Hunt, MoJo's Alan 'Mo' Morris and Allan 'Jo' Johnston, George Pattison and Norman Catts.

Another figure that has inspired a generation of creatives will be welcomed this year at the AdNews Agency of the Year Awards on 15 March. 

Who will it be? To find out, come along on the night and join us to recognise their lifetime achievements, and celebrate the success of the industry.

See a list of this year's finalists here.

Tickets to attend the event are available now

The Advertising Hall of Fame was begun in 2009, when AdNews retrospectively inducted 12 individuals who had impacted advertising since way back in  the early 1900s before the title even began. There's a lack of diversity between all the past inductees to the Advertising Hall of Fame that speaks to times gone by, but times have changed. Who do you think should join Hall of Fame in years to come?
