Twice a year, students at the Creative Circus submit their best creative projects to be judged by a star-studded cast of illustrious creative industry-professionals from all over the country, competing for the chance to win pride, honor, and the officially Circus-approved right to boast about it on their résumé.


Best In Show

Summer 2021

Their project, [ADULTSWIM] x YMCA is part PSA, part irreverent joke.
