The Dubai Lynx International Festival of Creativity has today announced the 2023 Awards are open for entries. Dubai Lynx is MENA’s leading platform for the creative communications industry to come together to learn, network and celebrate the power of creativity. Dubai Lynx will be returning as a one-day festival on Tuesday 14 March 2023, with the Awards Ceremony taking place on Wednesday 15 March 2023, where the winners will be announced at the Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai.
Dubai Lynx has also announced changes to the 2023 Awards, including the new Creative Commerce Lynx. This introduction reflects the region’s engagement with Commerce awards at our other festivals as well as an increase in commerce focussed work across the rest of Dubai Lynx. The Award celebrates the innovative and creative approach to online and offline commerce, payment solutions and transactional journeys. Entries will need to demonstrate how innovation and optimisation at any point of the end to end customer journey led to increased consumer engagement and commercial success.
The Media Lynx have also been refreshed for 2023, to put the jury in the best position to reward true media ideas. The ‘Co-Creation of Branded IP’ category has been introduced to ensure the Award accurately reflects the current Media industry, and recognises the breadth of work that media agencies and specialists are engaging in.
On entries opening, Thea Skelton, Festival Director, Dubai Lynx, said “We are delighted to bring back Dubai Lynx in-person this year and bring together MENA’s creative community in Dubai. The changes to the awards for 2023 reflects the changing industry landscape and allows Dubai Lynx to continue setting the benchmark for creative excellence in the Middle East and North Africa.”
Entries into Dubai Lynx are being accepted until Thursday 2 February 2023. Further information on the awards can be found at dubailynx.com
