Eligibility dates

Is your work eligible for Dubai Lynx 2020?
To ensure that work judged at Dubai Lynx is fresh and reflective of the work that drive the industry forward it is important we structure the competition with eligibility dates.

The eligibility dates for Dubai Lynx 2020 are 1 February 2019 to 29 February 2020.

If the work ran before the eligibility period (before 1 February 2019), but a minimum of two thirds of the campaign implementation ran within the eligibility period then it can be entered into the following awards:

Brand Experience & Activation
Creative Strategy
Design
Digital
Direct
Entertainment
Glass: The Award for Change
Healthcare
Integrated
Media
Mobile
PR

For the following awards you must ensure that the element(s) being judged was first implemented within the eligibility period:

Film
Film Craft
Industry Craft
Outdoor
Print & Publishing
Radio & Audio

We understand that some campaigns span several years, in these cases you will need to demonstrate a significant evolution in order to be considered. The Festival has the right to decide if the entry has evolved sufficiently and can be deemed as a new, eligible entry.

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