2012 OBIE Award Contenders

OAAA has released this year’s list of OBIE Awards finalists. Among them are quite a few friends of The Hangline such as Sukle, Firehouse, Amélie Company, Extra Credit Projects, Adams, Olympus, and Lamar. Congratulations, everyone. The playing field seems much smaller this year with only 44 agencies named as finalists. Last year, there were 70-something I think.
