FILE COMPOSITION

Ensure you submit all entry materials exactly as they were requested. Any missing material or information can result in disqualification.

The written brief is the most important part of the entry because it frames the business challenge and illustrates the creative approach as well as the effectiveness of the entry.

  • English is mandatory for the written brief 
  • The best briefs explain the competitive environment, the objectives and goals, and any evidence of performance. The brief should respond to the judging criteria (limited to 500 words).
  • Briefs should be clear, concise and free of jargon and exaggeration.
  • Each Jury analyses the entries in their categories. The judging criteria defer per Jury as explained further in this document.
