Judging of all materials submitted is conducted by promotion, marketing and design professionals from our industry.
Judges retain the right to disqualify entries at their discretion. This includes entries that do not have a completed Marketing Objective/Creative Strategy, are not entered in the correct categories, or that do not confirm to the technical specifications.
The judges consider three criterias:
1. Overall Creativity
2. Production Quality
3. Achievement of Stated or Implied Objectives
If you do not include your Marketing Objective/Creative Strategy, your entry will be disqualified. A Marketing Objective/Creative Strategy is a statement of your goals, mission or challenge, results expected and achieved, or the creative brief; it is not a description of the piece.
Based on the final score, awards may or may not be awarded in some categories. This is at the discretion of the awards committee.
We want you to have the best possible chance of winning, so please read the category descriptions and entry requirements carefully. Your online entry information must be complete.
Judges will abstain from voting on any work for which they or their companies have been involved.
The three criteria are considered to be equally important, so each section accounts for a third of the total score. Differences such as company size, budget, market share, etc. are taken into account.
