Don’t miss the chance to enter the AD STARS 2020 Awards - entries close on Friday 10th July 2020. AD STARS is free to enter, and the top two Grand Prix of the Year winners will win US $10,000 each.
Now in its 13th year, AD STARS is accepting entries until 10th July in the following categories: Film, Print, Outdoor, Radio & Audio, Design, Interactive, Mobile, Data Insights, Social & Influencer, PR, Brand Experience & Activation, Direct, Media, Integrated, Innovation, Diverse Insights, Place Brand, Creative eCommerce, Video Stars, Public Service Advertising (PSA) and Pivot. The Innovation and Integrated categories cost KRW100,000 (approx. US $100) per entry, but all other categories are free.
Hwan-Jin Choi, chair of AD STARS, says: “If you are a creative business located anywhere in the world, we encourage you to make the most of AD STARS’ philosophy as one of the only global awards platforms that is free to enter. We know that Covid-19 has triggered a shock to the global economy, and although this will impact many agencies and production companies, it has never been more important to celebrate the power of creativity and promote our value as an industry."
Choi continues: "We also encourage you to consider our newest categories: Pivot and Creative eCommerce. Pivot celebrates campaigns that have amplified and repositioned brands in response to Covid-19, or helped to overcome the pandemic through public health initiatives. Creative eCommerce celebrates ideas that optimise the customer journey through creative eCommerce solutions. Both categories are extremely relevant in the current landscape, and we are excited to see who is leading the way in these areas.”
The AD STARS 2020 Awards will be judged virtually in three stages: preliminary judges will select finalists from 20th - 28th July; final judges will undertake two rounds of judging from 3rd - 11th and 15th - 18th August. Winners will be unveiled online on 22nd August via the website
