On Thursday, May 19, creatives from all over the world will get gussied up for the 52nd annual CLIO Awards, which are getting a bit gussied up this year themselves: following a day of presentations and panel talks, a formal cocktail reception will be held at the Museum of Natural History on New York’s Upper West Side to celebrate the best creative of 2010. Like Adweek, the CLIOs are a division of Prometheus Global Media, so we have the honor of revealing some of the winners before the big event.
