Get Ready for the Richmond Show!

The 62nd annual Richmond Show is coming to the beautiful Altria Theater April 28th, 2023 starting at 7:00pm. All the winners will be announced on the big stage and then featured on the website.

Here’s everything you need to know about this year’s Richmond Show:

Theme and Dress

This year’s theme is ADAGE.

What is an adage? It’s a proverb or short statement expressing a general truth. As advertisers, we tell stories and create culture. At this year’s Richmond Show, we’re paying homage to the golden age of advertising: the good, the bad—and the silly.

Every year at the Richmond Show we dress to the theme. This year, think kitschy, retro, and vintage styles echoing the 1950s - 1970s. While it's not a requirement, we’d love to see you gussied up in your best classic looks. Here’s some outfit suggestions:

  • Mod shift dresses that channel your inner Twiggy
  • Is that Don Draper? Nope, it’s you in your best retro suit
  • Shirtwaist dresses that’ll make you feel like an extra in Pleasantville
  • Three-piece suits, checkered blazers, and super shiny oxford shoes

The 62nd Annual Richmond Show recognizes the best agencies and individuals in Virginia.
