2019 IDEA Awards

ThinkLA celebrates Southern California’s advertising, marketing and media superstars with the ThinkLA IDEA Awards. We bring the industry together to celebrate the exceptional work produced in our community with over 17 awards recognizing amazing campaigns, clients, media partners and people. Our annual Gala in June brings over 1,000 of the region's best and brightest together to honor our winners and celebrate in style.


Submissions are accepted only for work produced by and/or for a Southern California-based company and presented to the public in calendar year 2018. The work may have been launched earlier or still be live, but must have run at some point during this period.

Joint, team, and individual entries are acceptable. Entries may be from ThinkLA members or non-members.

There is no limit on the number of entries an individual or company may submit, but there is a limit of two (2) categories per entry. If an entry is entered into more than 2 categories, additional entries will be removed from judging and fees will not be refunded.

Please note: By entering work into the ThinkLA Awards you automatically grant ThinkLA the right to make copies, reproduce and display the creative materials and written information for educational and promotional purposes such as, but not limited to, the ThinkLA web site, newsletter, and the Awards Gala. Should your entry be selected as a finalist, ThinkLA will contact you to provide approved information for the Awards Gala and supporting materials.
