President and CEO, Matt Miller announced that Ali Brown, Partner/Executive Producer at PRETTYBIRD, will serve as the Chairperson of the 2020 AICP Show: The Art & Technique of the Commercial.

Miller additionally announced that the AICP Show will now accept entries from agencies, marketers, production companies and post production companies globally in all categories. The AICP Show is the most prestigious, largest and longest running craft-based awards competition in the world. This expansion allows it to become a truly global competition for excellence in brand communication for the moving image.

“It is such an honor to chair this year’s AICP Show, and having recently served as president of juries around the world from Thailand to Brazil, I’m particularly looking forward to the inclusion of international entries,” says Brown. “As this industry becomes truly global in its makeup and its reach, it’s only fitting that the Show expands to recognize the best work around the world. I’m excited to work with the very best creators in our business to select those to be honored.”

“Ali brings so much insight and experience to the Show,” notes Miller. “Her enthusiasm, knowledge and global stature will ensure that the judges and curators of the 2020 AICP Show will again assemble an unequalled compendium of work for this seminal year."
