    Gallery Night is Back!

    The American Advertising Awards is an exciting time for the Tampa Bay Community. Advertising professionals spend hours crafting the best messaging, editing the perfect photo, and shooting the highest quality video, that is submitted to get a chance to shine!

    This year we want to showcase ALL of the work that is produced in our community. Gallery Night is just that. Our first look in to all of the amazing work creative professionals are producing in Tampa Bay. It gives the community a sneak peak in to the collective group of work the judges will be judging prior to the Gala. 

    Grab your tickets, show off your work and scope out the competition. Each ticket comes with one free drink, hors d'oeuvre and a heck of a good time!
