The MKE 99 Show - 2017


Milwaukee's most prestigious advertising awards. A gotta-go social event. The apex of the United Adworkers calendar. Hall of fame inductions. The Milwaukee 99 is all of these.

On Thursday, October 12th we will recognize the 99 best pieces of advertising, marketing and general persuasion at the following levels of accomplishment:

  • Merit: no trophies, but really good work
  • Nuts: the hexagonal objects that line the desks of greatness—gold, silver and bronze are handed out
  • The Wrench: the heavy hardware, given for the Best In Show—if you find yourself holding it at the end of the evening, you’ve done something right

It’s an occasion for a small agency to make a name for itself. And for a big agency burnish its reputation. It’s also a chance for up-and-comers build their names, feed their egos and expand their opportunities.

Yes, the Milwaukee 99 is about winning. But it’s mostly about admiring. And that is the true spirit of the United Adworkers. So when your rival agency takes home a nut for a print campaign you know, deep down, is pretty darn good, there’s no shame in a hand shake and an "atta boy."
