Entries for the 44th AWARD Awards are now open!

Australasia’s most prestigious creative awards program recognises creative excellence across advertising, design, craft, film, entertainment, strategy and more, spotlighting the past year’s outstanding campaigns and best creative talent.

In exciting news, five new categories have been added to the annual awards program.

As part of the entry-based Special Awards, which recognise agencies and individuals who have consistently delivered high-quality work across the year, clients can now enter the Marketing Team of the Year and Chief Marketing Officer of the Year categories, while media companies can enter to win Media Agency of the Year. There is now also an Account Team of the Year award.

AWARD is also excited to announce a new agency of the year award – Rising Star/Breakthrough Agency of the Year – which will be judged by evaluating work awarded across all categories, recognising agencies who have excelled as part of each annual awards program.

Cam Blackley, AWARD Chair said “Over the last few years we have done a huge amount of work to heighten the reputation and prestige of the AWARD Awards to truly uncover the best creative work in the region.

“In 2023, that will include widening our awards program to welcome entries from clients and media agencies, who contribute so much to creative excellence across the industry.

“It’s all part of AWARD’s focus on innovation and inclusivity and we look forward to truly representing the pointy end of creativity from all corners of the industry,” he said.
