Our co-founders have been privileged to work on the American Image Awards for the past 6 years with other agencies & this year, as VERY New York public relations, we were asked to bid on the project & we were honored to have been chosen to produce the event once again. One of the most exciting parts of the event each year is the announcement of the honoree slate. As has been the tradition, WWD is given the exclusive story on the announcement when it is ready & why should this year be any different?
