New York Festivals International Advertising Awards will celebrate 55 years of honoring the World’s Best Advertising™ on May 2nd - 3rd at the 2012 New York Show. This exciting 2-day festival will feature creative panel discussions, keynote speakers, seminars, networking events, and the 2012 Executive Jury Press Conference. The festival culminates with an awards presentation and gala on May 3rd at the iconic New York Public Library Stephen A. Schwarzman Building, located at Fifth Avenue and 42nd Street.
The New York Public Library Stephen A. Schwarzman Building, designed in Beau-Arts style by architects Carrère and Hastings, celebrated its 100th birthday on May 23, 2011. The main branch was declared a national historic landmark in 1965, and recently underwent a three-year, $50 million restoration The library’s majestic steps are permanently guarded by its two beloved Library Lions – Patience and Fortitude – named by Mayor Fiorello La Guardia in the 1930’s, who chose the names because he felt the citizens of New York needed to possess these qualities in order to see themselves through the Great Depression.
The New York Festivals International Advertising Awards will play host to attendees from around the globe, including award winners, industry professionals, international press, and the 2012 Executive and Grand Jury.
