ABOUT THE SPOTLIGHT AWARDS
- CRITERIA: We have a panel of judges from the AIGA network who will be looking through all the submissions and giving 'Spotlight Awards' to projects they feel meet the following criteria: "Does it solve a problem?" "Is it driven by an idea?" "Is it well executed?". Judges will be announced soon.
- COMMUNITY SPOTLIGHT: We will also be recognizing members of Orange County's creative community who have made a significant impact and contribution to others in 2018.
- PROJECT GALLERY: Finally, at the 'Celebration Evening', we'll have select projects on-display for you to see up close and meet the Creatives behind the work.

ABOUT THE BRANDING
The ETHOS branding was created in-kind by the amazing team at Batch Co-Working in Downtown Santa Ana. Specifically:
- Avo Adourian - November Press
- Sarah Armstrong - A Name Brand Co.
- Petre Spassov - PS Design
Please Note: Avo, Sarah, and Petre, all do awesome stuff and as a result may receive Spotlight Awards in this year's ETHOS. We're not judging so have no idea if they will. If they do, it's not because they received special treatment due to their involvement in the event branding.
