The Association of Independent Commercial Producers, or AICP, is an American not for profit organization that represents the interests of United States companies that specialize in commercial production. Its members work in various media—film, video, digital—for advertisers and agencies.[1] Founded in 1972, the Association has national offices in New York and Los Angeles as well as regional chapters.[2]

The AICP's purpose is to disseminate industry information; represent the production companies within the advertising industry, in labor negotiations and before governmental officials; create industry standards; and provide professional development. Every year they produce The AICP Show, The Art & Technique of the American Commercial, as well as The Next Awards, which honor marketing innovations in emerging media. Both events take place at The Museum of Modern Art in New York.[3] The AICP Show and the awards are considered some of the most important advertising showcases in the U.S., and each year the work honored is made a part of the archives of the Department of Film at MoMA.[4]
