The awards, which recognized Southern California's most illuminated creative and tech-savvy brains, was produced by creative partner Walton Isaacson, the L.A.-based creative agency, and , the nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering Los Angeles' media, marketing, and advertising communities.

The evening's events included a cocktail reception and dinner followed by the awards gala and after-party.
