CICLOPE INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF CRAFT
CICLOPE is the only international festival fully dedicated to the “craft” skills in advertising. The Festival has become a platform for directors, CGI artists, producers and creatives to share knowledge, be inspired and celebrate the best work.
Unlike most advertising festivals, CICLOPE focuses on the art of execution, rather than the agencies’ ideas. Whether it´s a TV commercial, a mobile app or an interactive installation, we truly believe a good execution is as important as the idea, and extremely determinant for the consumer´s experience.
Annually held since 2010, CICLOPE gathers world top-notch professionals to share their ideas and know how, to discuss the main issues of the business, to celebrate the best work and to network with colleagues and clients.
Because of the high level of people attending and its friendly reputation, many agree that CICLOPE is the best event for effective and enjoyable networking.
A Conference and an Award Show merges in a three-day event full of professional contents and a lot of activities. The Conference offers inspiring talks and case studies, enriching seminars and workshops. The Award Show its an outstanding showcase and celebration of the very best of the year in different categories such as Direction, 3D Animation, Visual Effects, Interactive Commercials and Original Music, among others.
Starting this year, CICLOPE Awards will be divided by regions: US+Europe, Latin America, and Asia Pacific+Africa. The goal of this separation is to match up the big budget differences between the different countries and regions in the world.
The jury personally attends the festival to watch and discuss the best work across the different participants and award bronze, silver and gold medals according to the level of excellence.
