Clio Entertainment, formerly The Clio Key Art Awards, is the original and definitive distinction in creative communications for the entertainment business. Born in 1971 to celebrate the best in film marketing, the awards program became a Clios property in 2015, and with partner The Hollywood Reporter continues expanding its reach — across movies, TV and gaming. It reflects a field that through advances in technology and integration of new specialties, routinely recasts the notion of excellence in entertainment marketing.
