The path to creative immortality starts today as Little Black Book’s global, free-to-enter advertising award returns
The Immortal Awards returns today, launching the call for entries for its second annual international advertising award. Little Black Book members can submit their entries for this year’s competition here.

Debuting last year, The Immortal Awards is simply about celebrating the best creative work in the world – with no confusing categories or chunky entrance fees. A modern award for the new world of advertising, The Immortal Awards will once again be super straightforward and free-to-enter for all Little Black Book members.

“We were delighted with the first year’s Immortal Awards. We built the system, launched a show, judged in a super interesting way with a great jury and learnt stacks,” says Matt Cooper, founder of Little Black Book. “We built this show with passion and a real belief that something different was needed - and it worked. We’ll fine tune the Immortals year in, year out. We have some great ideas for our next steps and we’re looking forward to this year’s event even more than the first!”

Following a hugely successful debut year, in which the inaugural world-class jury set an incredibly high standard for years to come, just four campaigns were deemed Immortal. The highest honour available, Immortality is only awarded to projects that will have a lasting impact on the brand or the industry and which raise the bar.

The jury was impressed by the high quality and diversity of the work shortlisted, also awarding Commendations to 12 pieces that they saw as exceptional campaigns and stand-outs for 2018. 

A further 23 pieces achieved Finalist status, distinguished from the initial shortlist as pieces with creative merit that warranted further debate and discussion.

The Immortal Awards is currently embarking on a global showcase tour, screening the 16 Immortal and Commendation winners to audiences around the globe. Kicking off in London in February, the next stop on the tour is at Framestore in LA on Thursday 4th April (sign up here for tickets). More dates and locations will be unveiled soon.

Entries into The Immortal Awards will be accepted until September 9th 2019. All entries must be made for a commissioning client, and must have first aired, broadcast, displayed, launched or published between 1st September 2018 and 31st August 2019.  

Every member of LBB is entitled to up to five entries, depending on its membership tier. Bronze members receive one entry, whilst Silver members get two entries and Gold members get five.
