The One Show is the world's most prestigious awards show recognizing the best creative work in advertising, interactive, design and branded entertainment. The brightest creative minds from advertising agencies, digital agencies, design agencies, production companies, consumer brands and non-profit organizations from around the world enter every year.

The One Show awards ceremony is held during The One Club for Creativity's Creative Week in New York City. Creative Week is the preeminent festival showcasing the intersection of advertising, innovation and creative thinking. In addition to The One Show, Creative Week also includes the ADC Annual Awards, the dynamic Young Ones Education Festival, inspiring sessions with some of the biggest names in the industry at the Creative Summit, and the exclusive Executive Creative Summit, open to a limited number of top-level leaders (founders, CCOs and managing partners).

UPDATE: Creative Week 2020

Due to the situation around COVID-19, we have made the difficult, but important decision to take Creative Week Online in 2020 and cancel the live events in New York. Learn More

The 2020 One Show award winners will be announced in June.
