The Advertising Club and AAAI expressed confidence that both would be back next year on a grander scale. The Abby Awards saw some of the greatest works being submitted this year and despite a global health pandemic and muted economic condition, the number of entries were at almost at par to that of last year. Such large participation numbers for the Abby awards are a testament to its covetous stature in the industry. The organisers are evaluating all options about the entries received this year and will take a call upon whether they will be judged next year on a later date.
