“From its local origins in South Korea, AD STARS has grown into a global event with a unique point of difference in just eight years. We are pleased to have attracted so many entries again this year, and we’d like to thank everyone who took the time to enter,” says Eui Ja Lee, Co-chairperson of the AD STARS Executive Committee.

Based in South Korea, AD STARS offers a level playing field for agencies and production companies as all of its 18 categories are free to enter. Only its Integrated category has an entry fee attached to it, which makes the festival uniquely accessible to agencies regardless of size or location.

AD STARS is also the only global advertising festival to reward two US$10,000 cash prizes to its Grand Prix of the Year winners as a means of nurturing and supporting creative talent.
