2020 has certainly been a year of “firsts,” having a completely virtual show wasn’t something we ever envisioned when we embarked on our planning. But we hope that you will enjoy the online experiences our team has worked incredibly hard to produce. To all of the entrants and winners: Congratulations on a job well done!

Jen Tanabe

2019-2020 President, AAF Hawaii
Lead creative agency, Wall-to-Wall Studios

While we are all adjusting to a new normal during this crazy pandemic, I wanted to take this time to say Mahalo for all of your support and understanding with regards to this year’s 2020 Pele Awards Competition. Wishing you all to stay well and please take care.
