About the Creative Showcase
Creative Showcase celebrates cutting-edge creativity and innovation within the online advertising sector. Any agency or in-house team can enter the quarterly competition as long as their campaign is bona fide and targeted at an Australian audience.
Every third month, campaigns are judged by senior online creatives and a winner and two runners-up are chosen. The awarded campaigns are published below under the case studies section of the website. The winners are announced at an informal one hour luncheon in Sydney every 12 weeks.
At the end of each 12 month round (running July to June the following year) the overall winner: The Best of the Best is announced. Their entry is submitted to the IAB US MIXX Awards in New York. In the past, many Australian Creative Showcase winners have gone on to win awards at the MIXX Awards.
Creative Showcase was first launched in November 2006, and is now a staple of IAB's calendar of events, with some truly impressive winners announced every year.
If you are having trouble entering, please contact the IAB on (02) 9211 2738.
