Golden Hammer is a festival of creativity in every sense. We honour victories achieved, congratulate passionate projects and celebrate the awesomeness of bright minds that know no boundaries.

Golden Hammer evolved into a full-fledged international advertising festival in 1999, having established itself on the Latvian scene. The scrupulous traditions established since then have attracted creative agencies from more than 25 countries. Over the years, Golden Hammer’s hand-picked, multinational juries have always displayed objectivity and a meticulous approach to their evaluations, so ensuring fair competition, encouraging perfection and bringing global recognition.

We are passionate about creativity and great ideas that can only be achieved through constant change and improvement, which is why we see Golden Hammer’s role going beyond merely rewarding success. We want to trigger new solutions and broaden the creative industries’ horizons by presenting cutting-edge trends, valuable content and alternative entertainment from around the world. We understand well that advertising professionals have seen it all and are difficult to surprise, but we go all out to deliver relevant speakers, run indispensable workshops and, oh yes, throw a flamboyant party or two.

Join us at Golden Hammer to celebrate our successes and set pointers for the future!
