The public, including UGA alumni and friends, is invited to celebrate the Bulldog 100 honorees at the Atlanta Hyatt Regency on Jan. 27. Registration is open at

The awards ceremony will feature a keynote address by alumna Amy Smilovic, founder and creative director of women's clothing and accessories brand Tibi, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. After graduating from UGA with a degree in advertising and a minor in art, Smilovic worked in marketing for Ogilvy and American Express. In 1997, she moved to Hong Kong to turn her love of art into a career in fashion. Today, Tibi is a renowned lifestyle brand and has been featured everywhere from New York Times fashion photographer, the late Bill Cunningham's On the Street column, to Elle Netherlands.

Following Smilovic's remarks, the Alumni Association will recognize alumnus Michael Bryan, owner of Vino Venue/Atlanta Wine School-the only business to make the Bulldog 100 list eight consecutive years. Bryan passed away earlier this year after a long battle with cancer; the Michael Bryan Entrepreneurship Award, which will become an annual award, will be given to a 2018 Bulldog 100 business.

Members of the Student Alumni Council will lead the highlight of the evening-the release of the final rankings and countdown of the 2018 Bulldog 100.

"The energy in the room is infectious and the anticipation of finding out the rankings makes it one of my favorite nights of the year," said Meredith Gurley Johnson, executive director of the UGA Alumni Association. "The alumni that we celebrate at this event are movers and shakers, and they are proof of what is possible with a University of Georgia education."
