Much like the Food Network show “Chopped,” four teams of local professional and student creatives will be assembled to compete against each other to create new ad concepts for a local nonprofit.

Here’s how the competition works:

There will be three timed rounds, each featuring a different category. One team will then be eliminated at the end of each round. The winning team will then create a final polished version of its ad concepts after the event for the nonprofit to use as it wishes.

Each round will be judged by a panel of three judges, with at least one representing the selected nonprofit.

The final concepts will be presented to the nonprofit at the annual AAF Holiday Party. All proceeds from event attendance will also be donated to the nonprofit or be used toward facilitating the new campaign.

Interested in Participating or Attending?

To make this event especially beneficial for the selected nonprofit, we need teams and attendees!


You can either assemble your own team or sign up solo, and we will place you on a team. Want to join the fun but don’t want to be on a team? Register as an attendee, and you can cheer on our participants. Either way, CROPPED is always a great night of giving back to a deserving nonprofit, and you don’t want to miss out!
