AWARD Awards collaborates with Semi Permanent

The Australasian Writers and Art Directors Association (AWARD) is collaborating with Semi Permanent by including an AWARD showcase in the arts event and by using it to host its annual ceremony.

The Communications Council CEO Tony Hale said the move ties in with one of the organisation's key priorities of showcasing the best of the advertising industry to a broader audience.

Our members will also benefit from access to Semi Permanent talks and exhibitions with discounted rates and invitations to exclusive member events,” Hale said. “There is a real focus on creativity in Sydney during May, with Vivid held concurrently - it’s important that AWARD is a prominent part of that celebration.”
