COVID-19/Coronavirus

Dubai Lynx award-winning ideas should be celebrated, and we don’t think it’s an appropriate time for that right now.

We’re grateful to all of your teams who have already spent a great deal of time on this year’s awards and the event. Their efforts won’t go wasted.

Work from the 2020 festival will be judged at the 2021 festival. The Dubai Lynx Awards will be held in 2021 in Dubai and new dates will be announced shortly.

We look forward to celebrating and honouring the work – and bringing the community together again when the world will hopefully be a more stable and optimistic place.

We look forward to welcoming back the region’s top brands and the creative industries to celebrate the best of MENA’s creativity.

Design

The Design Lynx celebrates visual craftsmanship.

Judging Criteria

Entries will need to demonstrate how design has been used to define a brand or communicate its key messages. That is, work in which a unique visual identity leads to consumer recognition or understanding.

A number of criteria will be considered during judging and weighted as follows: 40% idea; 40% execution; 20% results.

There is no overall limit to how many times the same piece of work can be entered into Design as long as the categories chosen are relevant. However, the same piece of work may only be entered up to three times in ‘D. Brand Environment & Experience Design’.
