I think it's time to take back the Key Art Awards! This thing isn't over! Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell, no! It's time to #occupykeyartawards - who's with me?
As if the Key Arts showing of the winners online was not enough (whoops!) Now they are calling shops offering free sets of tickets. So what does that mean for the poor bastard that already bought a ticket for the published $299 price?

Is this so? Given the deep bench they had assembled for their jury pool, we find this puzzling. Goodness knows veracity is not the forte of our readers - or this blog; but if this is the case, we'd love to know who the poor bastard is who bought that one ticket.
Submissions for the glamorous and exciting 2011 Key Art Awards open this June 1. Be sure to visit keyartaward.com for details regarding eligibility, fees and media handling charges. Please make sure that you enter all information and credits completely and accurately when submitting an entry so that all contributors are properly recognized for their efforts. Ha ha. Just kidding.
Fasten your cumberbunds, folks! According to The Hollywood Reporter’s press release, the End Times are upon us with the comingling of advertising’s two biggest buttocks smooching organisms: THR’s Key Art Awards and the CLIO Awards.
And, just as it was prophesized in The Book of Revelation, gold, silver and bronze awards will be handed out in the categories of Marketer of the Year, Agency of the Year and Lifetime Achievement Award.
If you’re like us, you are already in a state of anticipatory bedlam at the prospect of a repeat performance of the CLIO’s 1991 debacle, affectionately known as "The Most Bizarre Event in Advertising History.”
