ADFEST 2020: This Year’s Award and Festival Cancelled Due to COVID-19, Program to Resume in 2021

PATTAYA, THAILAND – ADFEST has released an official statement today announcing the cancellation of this year’s festival, due to the global health emergency brought about by the continuous spread of COVID-19.

Read their full statement below:

In light of the covid-19 pandemic which continues to show no sign of easing up anytime soon, we at ADFEST have come to the decision to cancel this year’s festival.


We believe this is not the right time as people’s attention and priorities are needed elsewhere.

While we considered online judging as an alternative for the works this year, we do not feel it is right to ask juries to review the works at a time like this. Understandably at the moment, people are just not in the right mindset.

Therefore, we have decided to cancel both the judging and festival for ADFEST 2020, and judge the 2020 entries at the same time as ADFEST 2021 when the time and situation are more suitable for such matters.

ADFEST is committed first and foremost to the people who support and follow us and we think this is the best course of action to take given the circumstances.

We will return when the time is right with ADFEST 2021, which will be held from 17-20 March 2021.

We thank you for your support and understanding on this matter and we would also like to thank our fantastic team behind the scenes, who have been amazing throughout these unprecedented times.

Finally, we hope that you and your families are safe during this very difficult time on both personal and professional levels. Our hearts go out to you all.
