American Advertising Awards Mardi Gras Ball

February 19 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM EST

$90

We can’t wait to gather and recognize the parade-worthy work our community has done this past year! The 2022 Mardi Gras Ball will celebrate the reuniting of our AAF community as we revel in the varied work and voices that create the best communications and creative work in the Midlands.

COVID-19 Safety Precautions

We’re ready to celebrate with old and new friends while working to keep everyone safe. You can expect the following precautions:

  • A huge venue space with plenty of room to spread out. We have chosen Junction 800 in part due to its large open space. We will be spacing tables and everything else further apart this year.
  • Assigned tables. All tables this year will be pre-assigned to your organization or group. Think of it as a pod for your gala experience.
  • Catering protocols in keeping with safety needs.
  • Three bar service areas for shorter lines and increased distance.
  • Masks are encouraged while not eating or drinking.

We hope to see you in person at the gala but if the above precautions don’t meet your level of comfort, we’ve got your awards covered:

We will announce the winners via our Instagram, Facebook, and LinkedIn accounts during the evening of the event for those at home and in-person to follow along and support one another.

The presentation slides will be sent to all winners and ticket purchasers after the event.

If you’re a winner who is not able to receive your award the evening of the gala, your award will be available for pick up after the event.
