Campaign Asia-Pacific is delighted to announce the 2014 call for entries from Australia/New Zealand for the region’s most prestigious Agency of the Year awards.

For more than 20 years, the Agency of the Year awards have celebrated the achievements of the region’s advertising industry, recognising strong leadership, creativity and innovation, stellar new business performance, the development of talent in the region, and contribution to the industry.

The aim of these awards is to reward the industry top performers in Australia and New Zealand. They are designed to allow agencies — big or small — and talent to shine within the local market and region, with the opportunity of network recognition at an Asia-Pacific level.

We have also made a few important changes to the entry criteria this year, so please ensure you read the entry kit carefully. Note, that your written submission must be no more than 2,000 words in any specified category.

There will be country awards in the Creative Agency of the Year, Media Agency of the Year and Digital Agency of the Year, and regional awards (Australia/New Zealand) in the remaining categories. There are eight people categories to celebrate individual achievements and contributions. In the agency categories, judges will award a Gold, Silver and Bronze, while only a winner and runner-up will be announced in the people categories.

The judging panel will comprise senior marketers from key business categories and Campaign’s editors. In our commitment to transparency, PricewaterhouseCoopers Limited (PwC HK) will compile the results of the awards.

Only achievement for the November 1, 2013 to October 15, 2014 period will be evaluated by the judges.

If you believe your agency and people have a story to share and celebrate, please send us your submissions.

Good luck!
