Ian Blackley only had 24 hours in New York City and his intent was to make the most of it. Or at least try to.
The Academy of Art University School of Advertising (ADV) B.F.A. student found himself in the Big Apple for the Radio Mercury Awards, a Radio Advertising Bureau event that recognizes excellence in radio advertising. Going into NYC, Blackley’s Tropicana radio spot, I Am A Mouth, was just a nominee for the Student Produced category; by the end of his trip, it walked out as the winner.
