We are committed to recognising and rewarding great work in Audio and in partnership with ICAD, we will celebrate brilliant creativity in audio advertising and champion the teams behind the winning work.”
Nathan Reilly, President of ICAD said: “George Lucas said that “sound is half of the picture”. When delivered well, it captures audiences, delivers meaningful information and entertains.
