"It’s true. Everything has been done before. So, as a creative, it’s your job to find that one idea that has only been done once, but done prior to 1 B.C."

"Street corners are more interesting than streets. That's where you get more perspective and where cool types usually hang around. The corner of Adland and Entertainment is one of the most exciting places in every country right now. The A-List Awards is a celebration of that."

Chris Kyme

"Much of what we see around us every day is boring and predictable, so we have a responsibility to seek out and celebrate the ideas and work that inspires and delights, in whatever shape or form it comes in." 

Patrick Mulford

"Great entertainment x brand collaborations not only connect with audiences at a far deeper level than traditional advertising - but they also have the potential to impact culture. That, for me, is what lies at the heart of The A-List Hollywood Awards."

Renato Fernandez

"The worlds of entertainment and advertising are blending more than ever. However, with this evolution comes the challenge for brands to evolve without losing their most important currency - their brand soul and identity."
