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 on 10 March 2021 in Dubai. 

We look forward to celebrating and honouring the work – and bringing the community together and welcoming back the region’s top brands and the creative industries to celebrate the best of MENA’s creativity.

Judging Criteria

Entries will need to demonstrate brilliant brand storytelling intended for a screen. That is, filmed content created for TV, cinema, online and out-of-home experiences.

Criteria considered during judging will predominantly be the idea and the execution.

There is no overall limit to how many times the same piece of work can be entered into Film as long as the categories chosen are relevant. However, the same piece of work may only be entered once into section ‘A. TV / Cinema Film: Sectors’ and once into section 'B. Online Film: Sectors'.

In sections A, B, C and D each execution constitutes one entry and all executions must have run within the eligiblity period.

In Sections E, F and G multiple executions can be entered as one entry however all Film executions must have run within the eligiblity period.

Work which is not in English should be subtitled, so that it can be understood in English, exactly as it was published or aired. Please note that dubbing is not allowed.
