AWARD Awards Call for Entries launch in 40th anniversary year

New categories have been included this year to highlight and celebrate work that betters the world by addressing issues of inequality as well as a new Craft in Advertising category recognising craft in experiential advertising.

Early bird discount of 10% ends 5pm Monday 29th October, with all entries closing on Friday 30th November. Late entries will be accepted up until Monday 10th December, though a late fee will apply.

This year’s creative campaign, ‘Turn Hate Into Gold’ was completed by last year’s AWARD Agency of the Year, Host/Havas with Visual State, The Editors and Song Zu. It focuses on how all the frustrations, irritations and pains (big and small) that we face on a daily basis can be used as inspirational fuel to create something brilliant and, ultimately AWARD-winning.

AWARD Chair Mike Spirkovski said, “Over the years creative departments around the country (and the world) have had their ideas and themselves battered to death by a daily onslaught of challenges. At times it seems impossible to make great work, but somehow through all the agony, frustrations and hate, brilliant ideas prevail. This year’s Award Call for Entries campaign developed by Host/Havas is a great reflection of a day in the life of Adland and what it takes to win at AWARD”.

AWARD will be celebrating its 40th anniversary with various celebrations to mark the occasion to be announced in 2019.

Australia’s preeminent awards ceremony recognising the finest creative minds from Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia AWARD will be accepting work completed within the eligibility period of 1st January 2018 – 31st December 2018.
