ACE Awards

Secret War

Agency: FKA


The Advertising Club of Edmonton puts on the ACE Awards, celebrating the creative successes of local professionals, agencies and advertisers. Not surprisingly, this Edmonton-only show receives limited attention throughout the rest of the world. This has motivated some local agencies to spend their award show budgets elsewhere. To reverse this trend, we created a playful video that shows how desperate agencies outside of Edmonton are to qualify for the show, and to win a coveted ACE Award.

This professional campaign titled 'Secret War' was published in Canada in February, 2023. It was created for the brand: ACE Awards, by ad agency: FKA. This Film medium campaign is related to the Other industry and contains 1 media asset. It was submitted over 1 year ago.
