Big Wig Awards

Big Wigs is about paying homage to the talented professionals who make sure creative work is seen. Every fall we honor the talented humans that make it possible to be creative in Austin.

About Big Wigs

Creative work isn’t possible without a lot of amazing people.

Each Fall, AAF Austin makes a call for nominations and hosts judging by members. Then we host a huge party to honor the winners.

Nominations are expected to open again in August 2023 — stay tuned!
