About The ADWEEK Project ISAAC Awards

Celebrating invention in media, advertising & marketing and technology.

As the media, marketing and technology sectors continue to transform at a rapid pace, genuine invention, rather than innovation, has become crucial to advancing brands and businesses past the inertia of traditional models and modes.

ADWEEK Project ISAAC Awards were conceived to cast a celebratory light on invention across all of ADWEEK’s areas of coverage. Entries will be accepted across 35 categories, divided into three brackets: Advertising & Marketing, Media and Best Practices. An independent panel of jurors will judge the submissions in two rounds. Winners, which may be an individual, team or department, in each category will be profiled in an invention-themed issue of ADWEEK and to be published August 22, 2016.

Student Entries

Adweek is seeking the best student designed inventions, new products and concepts, that are expanding the realm of possibility and transforming media, advertising, marketing and technology. 

Submissions will be judged on creativity, impact and feasibility. 

The esteemed panel of Project ISAAC jurors will select one student entry from each medium (except Best Practices), awarding one with the overall grand prize. Winners will be given a trophy, profiled in Adweek and on and featured on

KBS will partner with Adweek to offer an internship to the winning student(s). The internship will be offered in the New York headquarters or one of their international offices.
