After organizing 18 AICP Show Curatorial Committee meetings and witnessing thousands of entries being judged by creative directors, producers, and artists from top agencies, Ileana Montalvo noticed that best ideas don't always win the awards. So she founded Award Queen.

She and her team have more than 20 years of experience producing the top ad shows, such as: The AICP Show, The Art & Technique of the American Commercial, and the AICP Next Awards.
