How to Submit

Submissions of people and work to be considered for Hall of Fame induction are accepted throughout the year and are judged annually by the Hall’s Executive Committee. The Executive Committee is made up of a 12-member panel of respected Wisconsin Advertising Professionals from a variety of agencies who have worked in the market for at least 20 years or more.

After being chosen, new inductees are notified at the end of May, and introduced in October at the United Adworkers annual 99 Awards held in Milwaukee.
