Since 2011, all entries into NYF's Advertising Awards competition are viewed by 400+ members of NYF's executive and grand juries, a brain trust of global creative minds, who collectively cast over 300,000 votes during the two-tiered judging process. Utilizing New York Festivals patented Matrix Judging System, the executive jury scores each entry on its own merits with 50% of the vote based upon its concept / idea, 25% stemming from its brand and market relevance, and 25% pulled from its production execution.

All Shortlisted entries will be selected by the grand jury. Shortlisted (finalist) entries, in all competitions, except Public & Media Relations, Marketing Effectiveness, Film Craft and Package Design, will be reviewed by the executive jury through four rounds of judging, to determine the World's Best Advertising Award-Winners.

The 2018 New York Show awards ceremony and gala will take place the evening of Thursday, May 17, 2018 at the world-class performance space, Jazz at Lincoln Center's Frederick P. Rose Hall, Broadway at 60th Street, New York City.
