The AICP Next Awards debuted tonight at The NYU Skirball Center in New York City. The AICP Next Awards is one of the tent pole events of AICP Week – which also includes the premiere of the AICP Show: The Art & Technique of the American Commercial, and the AICP Week Base Camp, which features educational seminars and panels. Rob Reilly, Global Creative Chairman, McCann Worldgroup, served as this year’s AICP Next Awards Judging Chair, as well as the Master of Ceremonies at the Next Awards. This year’s winners – along with all AICP Next Awards winners – are available for viewing at www.aicpawards.com. Each year, the honored work from the AICP Next Awards and AICP Show becomes a part of the archives of the Department of Film at The Museum of Modern Art.

The AICP Next Awards recognizes work in eight categories: Integrated Campaign, Experiential, Social, Product Integration, Website/Microsite, Mobile, Viral/Web Film and Cause Marketing. The Next Awards Judging Chair and the Jury Presidents from each category select The Most Next Award (Best in Show) from among the winners. This year’s Most Next honor went to Allstate’s “Social Savvy Burglar” out of Leo Burnett Chicago. The winner of the Most Next honor directs a $5,000 grant from the AICP Foundation to an educational institution of their choosing. This year’s grant went to Marwen, a nonprofit organization offering free, arts-based youth development programs for under-served Chicago students in grades 6-12. In a typical year, more than 900 students from almost 300 schools travel to Marwen, where they take classes designed and taught by practicing artists.

The Jury Presidents were: Colleen DeCourcy, Global Co-Executive Creative Director, Wieden+Kennedy (Social); Jennifer Golub, Mal For Good (Product Integration); Jeff Kling, Chief Creative Officer, Fallon (Viral/Web Film); Nick Law, Global Chief Creative Officer, R/GA (Experiential); Tor Myhren, Worldwide Chief Creative Officer, Grey (Integrated Campaign); Benjamin Palmer, Chairman, The Barbarian Group (Website/Microsite); Jaime Robinson, Executive Creative Director, Wieden+Kennedy, New York, (Mobile); and David Rolfe, Director of Integrated Production, BBDO New York (Cause Marketing).

Design and production company Trollbäck + Company collaborated with technology integration experts McCann Systems to create the staging, opening sequence and graphic navigation for the AICP Next Awards premiere.

Reilly served as master of ceremonies at the Next Awards debut. In addition to unveiling the winners, the three winning Integrated Campaigns –Allstate’s “Social Savvy Burglar,” Jordan Brand “RE2PECT” and “Unload Your 401K” for States United Against Gun Violence – were presented as case studies.
