As creators we spend our days carefully shaping the places and objects the rest of the world lives its lives around. The fingerprints of who we are cover newspapers, books, packaging, it appears on tv screens, bookshelves, store fronts. It stretches across the world, quietly whispering who we are. We are artists and storytellers. We are invisible but all around and only if you look carefully will you see us.

This is your chance to peek behind the curtain of this not-so-secret society.

Creative Best is the annual awards competition held by the Columbus Society of Communicating Arts. Each year, our organization gathers the outstanding works submitted by professionals and students alike in central Ohio. Join us, November 21st at the Vue, as we honor and award the winners with a night worthy of the best.
