But of the selection printed here, only one is by a famous creative director. Can you guess which one it is (answers below)?
The exhibition, held at the Old Truman Brewery on Brick Lane, opens with a dinner and auction on 1 December. It runs for two days. But it would not be a Nabs affair if there were not a cry to the industry for support.
For the auction, donations of prints or proofs of famous ads are requested.
Also in demand are pictures by well-known advertising photographers or props from ads: basically, anything that can be sold off to help boost Nabs' coffers. Tickets for opening night, including dinner and drinks, are available for £75 from firstname.lastname@example.org or (020) 7292 7330.
The exhibition was collated by the curator, Jeremy Akerman, an artist and lecturer at Central St Martins. Incidentally, he did not know the names or job titles of any of the entrants.
