    Judging CRITERIA

  • Content will be judged on its originality, creative departure from mainstream beer ads. Your commercials/shorts should be as original as the breweries you are representing.

  • Execution of idea. Technical polish is great, but don’t let your lack of a RED camera or drone deter you from your masterpiece idea.

  • Marketing value. Do you make the beer look good? Am I going to want to rush out and fill a growler after watching your ad?
