Thank you for being part of the Show!

The votes are in for Year 2 of The Side Show & our awards presentation premieres tonight! Our judges were floored by your projects & many stated this year was a much tougher game! 

About Us

Meet the mad men and mad women who decided to make a side project about side projects.


There’s nothing side about them. Our partners are the front and center of the ad game! Take a look here.


Where did this idea come from?

Side projects have always been a fun diversion, but with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, diversions have never been more welcome. Since there is no official entity that rewards side projects, we decided to make one.

Are you guys making millions of dollars from this?

No. The team is doing this out of the goodness of their own pockets and just wanted to do something fun and happy and uplifting. All submission and ticket fees will cover expenses related to the show. Once those are paid off all revenue will be directed back to increase each award’s payout. If you support what we are doing and want to donate, we would love you for it eternally. Please click here to do so.

What are you hoping to get from this?

More creatives creating on the side and more amazing judges seeing their work and connecting with before mentioned amazing ad creatives.

Ultimately what do you want?

To bring a light side to a very dark side in history. We won’t get into politics. But folks, we need creative stuff more than ever.

Can I enter one project into more than one category?

Yes! But you’ll have to pay for each category you enter that isn’t Social Good. So if you want to enter 4 categories for one project (and one is Social Good), you’ll need to pay $30.


Feeling like a really nice, good, kind person today that wants to donate? We’ll take it! We also will take any gift cards to Panera Bread.
