WINA came into being in order to acknowledge the work of independent, multinational advertising agencies and networks from across the world, with the help of around a hundred judges from all over the world. With a truly fair and democratic format, WINA is the only international festival with free case enrolment, and only the winners pay prizewinning rights.

Multinational independent advertising agencies and networks needed a space with the guarantees of a serious, impartial, fair festival that recognizes the best in the industry, so that the professionals who stopped signing up at festivals, will believe again.



The WINA Festival, seeks to scale local and regional visibility to global, to give more value to the agencies in front of their clients, the market and the media.






The new WINA host city has a long journey as a creative city. Bogotá is characterized by the diversity of its origins and stands out as the fourth largest in Latin America. The city brings together a great diversity of traditional, popular and urban expressions of the country, which make it a stage with audiences for almost any cultural and creative expression.

Bogotá has been able to implement strategies based on the recognition of art and culture, as an engine of development and powerful tools for social transformation. This has been achieved to a large extent, thanks to the articulated work between public and private sector entities.

In this work it is pertinent to highlight the work of entities such as: District Institute of Arts – IDARTES, Ministry of Culture, Recreation and Sports, the support of the Chamber of Commerce of Bogotá, and entities such as the Bureau of Conventions of Bogotá, entity in charge of present the candidacy for WINA to arrive in the Colombian capital.
