The theme this year at the Institute of Advertising Singapore’s annual Hall of Fame Awards is ‘Rock Star of Advertising’. Now in its 15th year, the Hall of Fame Awards credits the individuals and companies who have made an impact on the advertising industry. On 29th November at the Marina Bay Sands Convention Center, ‘The Agency of the Year’ and ‘The Advertiser of the Year’ will be honoured as well as the best advertising campaigns. There are a variety of individual awards across media and digital fields as well as creative director of the year. The process for selecting these individuals was changed this year. The names are drawn from the people listed as being key in the production of the creative work submitted.

This year IAS has introduced the ‘Upstart of the Year’, a special award given to someone under thirty and in the first five years of his or her career.

The Chairman of the Hall of Fame Awards 2013 is Wong Mei Wai.
