The MKE 99 Show - 2019


The Milwaukee 99 is Wisconsin's most prestigious advertising award show. It's also our simplest. Many will submit, 99 will be chosen, and the top pick will take home Best of Show.

If you've entered before, you may've noticed the process has changed.

Give our guidelines a once-over to get started. It'll probably be painless!
