IDEA Awards Gala 2018: The Power of Us

Posted By Emily Hope, Thursday, June 7, 2018

Cheers to the dreamers, the doers, the makers, the risk takers. Here's to the Best of Us.

The IDEA Awards Gala honors campaigns, agencies, clients, marketers, media partners and individuals that exemplify the best our region has to offer. For the eighth year, we celebrated Southern California's advertising, marketing and media superstars. 

Thank you for supporting your fellow marketing and advertising family by showing up for our premier event of the year. BIG congratulations to all of our finalists, winners, and entries and special thanks to our host, Paul Ollinger, commentators: Jacklyn Uweh and Chris Denson, and our event partners and sponsors who helped us create all of the magic! #ThinkAwards #PowerOfUs
