If you are reading this, it means you want to enter the Creative Showcase or you keep entering, but never quite seem to win. The following is a short guide on how to enter the award without getting loads of questions from us or at worst disqualification.

Entry Criteria

Great digital work - it's that simple, well not quite.

More detailed entry criteria

Work entered must have run for a bona fide client (even if it is self promotion), not a piece of experimental work that will never see the light of day. This award is for legitimate marketing creative that has run.

Creative showcase is focused on advertising aimed at the Australian audience.

Agencies outside of Australia are eligible to enter, but the paid-for advertising must run with a message aimed at Australian audiences.

Judging criteria

Judges will be looking for the following when evaluating the campaigns

  • Brand fit
  • The idea: creative excellence
  • Use of the medium and innovative use of media
  • Engagement: quality of consumer interaction


Make your entry as easy to judge as possible

  • If there are some elements of the entry that you do not wish to be made public, please specify this in the entry
