About Clio


Clio exists to honor creativity in every form.  We celebrate work that moves consumers, makes icons of brands and defines a global industry.

The Clio Awards is the esteemed international awards competition for the creative business.

Founded in 1959 to celebrate high achievement in advertising, the Clios annually and throughout the year recognize the work, the agencies and the talent across advertisingsportsfashionmusicentertainment, and health that push boundaries and establish new precedent.

Clio's year-round celebration of creativity includes a daily editorial content platform, Muse by Clio, that highlights the best in creativity from the advertising world and beyond with original stories and guest essays from the industry's top talent, and Ads of The World, an international database cataloging the work of an ever-evolving industry.
