Last chance to enter Campaign Brief’s The Work 2020. Final deadline for entries is midnight TONIGHT (EST) Friday 15th May, 2020. Over 1,900 entries already received and changes made to entry qualification and acceptance fee payments detailed below.
Now in its 18th year, The Work features the very best advertising of the year from Asia, Australia and New Zealand. Published by Campaign Brief, The Work is recognised as a true record of creativity for the entire region.
There are three things that differentiate The Work 2020 from traditional award shows:
Firstly, entries are FREE.
Secondly, we are selective – to qualify for entry the ad or campaign must have already passed the test and been a finalist or winner at an awards show. COVID-19 exception for The Work 2020 – as several shows have been cancelled this year we are allowing new work that has not won awards yet to be entered. In the “Awards Won” part of the submission write “New work – Yet to be judged”.
Thirdly, there is no wasted entry fees – only entries that are accepted into The Work incur an acceptance fee.
All entries are uploaded online: Judging will take place in May and notifications of acceptances will be sent out in June 2020. Accepted work will be featured in Campaign Brief’s The Work 2020 Gallery. (view The Work 2019 Gallery here).
Entries are open to all agencies, production companies, individuals and suppliers who are based in Asia, Australia and New Zealand.
Ads that have already been entered in The Work in previous years can not be entered again.
Entry is FREE. This is not another awards show. The Work is all about recording and recognising the best ads from our region. If your entry is accepted into The Work there will be an ACCEPTANCE FEE of AUD$215 for each single entry and AUD$375 for campaign entries.
In this way there are no wasted entry fees! If none of your entries are selected to appear in The Work there is no fee to be paid. Similarly if your budget this year only stretch to 2 or 3 acceptances – just enter your best 2 or 3 pieces of work.
Campaign Brief also understands that due to the Covid-19 crisis budgets have been affected, so we are receptive to requests from agencies for extended payment terms on the acceptance fees.
The first step is to register and then log in. Then follow the upload instructions. See detailed step by step instructions below.
Read this bit: EVERY entry to The Work 2020 must have already “passed the test” and been a WINNER or a FINALIST at a recognised city, national, regional or international awards show between January 1st, 2019 and April 30th, 2020.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to most 2020 awards being postponed from their usual dates this year (because of the Coronavirus outbreak) we will accept work entered into these awards. In the “Awards Won” section of our entry system just write “New Work. Entered into (name of award)”.
Entry deadline is May 15th, 2020.
