Montreal, April 25, 2022 - The Association of Creative Communications Agencies (A2C), in collaboration with the Society of Graphic Designers of Quebec (SDGQ), is pleased to announce the launch of ticket sales for the 2022 edition of the Idéa Awards, which will be presented as a hybrid event for the first time since its creation. The event will take place simultaneously at New City Gas and online on June 9.

The Idéa Awards ceremony is a unique opportunity to bring together and inspire all industry professionals, through the discovery of projects that have made their mark in the six main disciplines of creative communications in Quebec: Business Results and Strategy, Craft/Production, Creative Advertising, Design, Digital Products and Experiences, and Media.


A full day of festivities

Several new elements will be introduced this year. Indeed, the festivities will be spread out throughout the day. Everyone will be invited to join the online unveiling of the Bronze Award winners at 9 a.m. and the Silver Award winners at noon. These virtual meetings, which will be broadcast live, will showcase the projects that have distinguished themselves in the eyes of the various juries.

The high point of the day will be the unveiling of the Gold and Grand Prize awards winners at 7:30 pm. It will be broadcast at New City Gas, preceded by an exclusive cocktail reception, but will also be available for viewing at the office or from the comfort of your home. The entire industry will be invited to continue the celebrations at New City Gas starting at 9:00 pm.

Hosted by Nicolas Ouellet for the third year in a row, this five-part awards ceremony will allow us to get together in person after two eventful years. With its arcade theme, which was featured in the promotional campaign developed by Bleublancrouge, the event will include performances by local DJs, arcade games, various discussion areas, a trophy bar to immortalize the winners and many other surprises.
