There are five major categories in which to enter work:

  1. Advertising
  2. Design

  4. For Good
  5. Student

Within each of these major categories there are numerous sub-categories designed to enable the broadest, but most relevant disciplines of the local advertising and design industry to be represented.

More detail and explanation of categories and sub-categories has been added where appropriate to help you determine the best place to submit your work.

Entry Criteria

Each entrant, where relevant, may submit an overall written description of the entry of no more than 200 words, and if in your judgement a supporting video is required, its duration can be no longer than 2-minutes.
