Finalists Announced For The Hollywood Reporter's Key Art Awards

196 finalists have been selected from 2,558 entries as the entertainment marketing award celebrates its 40th anniversary.

For the 40th anniversary of The Hollywood Reporter KEY Art Awards, which will honor the most creative entertainment marketing of 2011, during an Oct. 19 ceremony at Hollywood's ArcLight Cinerama Dome & Boulevard 3, the entire contest was reimagined.

The jury pool has shrunk from 1,000 to 40 -- and no clients judging this time, just creative experts. There are five juries: print, audio/ visual, interactive, display and public relations.

They winnowed 196 finalists from 2,558 entries. And new forms of work will be recognized including gaming, bus sides, taxi talk and direct mail. It has been a good year for movies but a great one for the art of marketing.
