For years, the Adworkers anticipated October for great work and, if you’re me, even better hangs.

It didn’t matter if you had something in the show (again, me), you knew you were going to have a memorable evening with the entire community.

Of course the true 99 will happen again, but in the meantime, we thought it’d be nice to embrace The Year of the Internet with a virtual showcase. No judging, no awards, just our people coming together to share the best stuff we’ve been working on.


Every professional was allowed up to three submissions with the option to add a personal greeting. The work is in no particular order, can be shared to social and filtered by category or creator, be they agency, in-house team, or freelancer. Like what you see? Tap the ole Adworkers Golden Nut.


Every student submission was judged by the Adworkers Board of Directors to arrive at our Student Gold, Runner-up, and three featured players. First and second-place winners will be awarded scholarship prize money to the tune of $2000 and $500. Congrats to our winners!


Websites are hard. I want to thank everyone who took the time to make some lemonade with us — you, the participants, and the team: Jason Lauritch at Zizzo for jumping in at the last minute, Rachel Bertsch at EPIC Creative and Adworkers consultant (what I’m calling him) Evan Stremke of Manifesto. There are few who’ve committed as much time and talent to the club.

Enjoy in Remembrance

The Ninety Nine Adworkers Showcase is dedicated to creative giant, Wisconsin Advertising Hall of Famer and one of the original Adworkers, Rich Kohnke.

As for what’s next: we’re gonna get back together this year. I can sense it, can you?

With optimism,

Ryan Day
Executive Director
