We’re on a journey to the stars

In honor of the great city we call home, this year’s show theme was inspired by Richmond’s motto. Sic itur ad astra, “thus you shall go to the stars”, reminds us to keep our head in the clouds as we endeavor to create.

Every year The Richmond Show recognizes the brilliance of those in the advertising community. Those whose interactive, advertising, design, and production work has dazzled us over the past year. It’s also a night to recognize rising stars with the Ad Person of the Year award and the Excellence in Creative Education and Women in Advertising scholarships. Will you join us?

New Horizons

We’re looking onward and upward as we usher in a new era of the Advertising Club of Richmond. One that fosters the social responsibility of our creative community. One that unites us rather than divides us. In lieu of the Cannonball, we’ll be welcoming a new illustrious award as we embark on this journey.
