Eligibility Dates

Is your work eligible for the Festival?

To ensure that work judged at the Festival is fresh and reflective of the good ideas that drive the industry forward it is important we structure the competition with eligibility dates.

To be eligible your entry must have aired, launched or been released to the public for the first time between 1 February 2018 and 28 February 2019 (the “eligibility period”) or

  • if a campaign began before the eligibility period (before 1 February 2018), a minimum of two thirds of the campaign implementation must fall within the eligibility period;
  • if you are entering a campaign that has run over two or more years, you will need to provide proof of the campaign’s evolution from year to year (we have the right to decide if the entry has evolved sufficiently and can be deemed as a new, eligible entry);
  • if you are entering a ‘Campaign of Executions’, the whole campaign must fall within the eligibility period; and
  • If you are showcasing a continuation of a campaign that aired before the eligibility period then you must clearly show how the campaign has progressed (we have the right to decide if the entry has progressed sufficiently and can be deemed as a new, eligible entry).

Eligibility for Creative Effectiveness

To be eligible your work must have won or been shortlisted at the Festival in 2016, 2017 or 2018.

Note: The same piece of work cannot be submitted into the same Award in consecutive years. However, providing the eligibility dates are met, you may enter the work into an alternative Award.
