Ad 2 Dallas aims to shine a spotlight on the rising stars who are continuously making a difference in our advertising community here in Dallas. With this goal in mind, we’re kicking off Dallas’ 3rd annual 32 Under 32 award program. Similar to Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list, the 32 Under 32 program recognizes 32 local professionals under the age of 32 for their extraordinary accomplishments. This is a night for celebration as we raise our glass to these passionate, forward-thinking, and motivated professionals, and applaud them for the work they’ve accomplished so early on in their careers. See last year's group here
