Well, the night finally arrived and boy, was it a good one. Revellers started streaming into The Hoxton in downtown Toronto last night to celebrate the past year’s best and brightest work. All our finalists’ work was on display, drinks were flowing (a big thanks to our sponsor, Steam Whistle Brewing, for the generous supply of suds) and DJ Odario had tunes spinning as industry professionals mixed, mingled and noshed on tasty snacks by P&L Catering.


Okay, okay. We know you want us to get to the good stuff. Who won those shiny AACE and Young AACE cubes?
