Your Core Submission Document should contain a maximum of 2,000 words (total) with evidence to support and address each of the criteria points outlined in the ‘categories and criteria’ section of the Entry Guidelines document.

Each criteria bullet point will hold a maximum potential value of 10 points. When reviewing individual entries, the judges will decide how many points to award against each criterion out of 10, so please ensure every area is fully covered in order to achieve your highest possible score.


The eligibility period for work submitted is from July 2019 to June 2020. Entries should reflect results achieved during this period.

Categories are open to marketing teams in client organisations and advertising, marketing and PR agencies across Singapore.

Entrants can nominate themselves or a colleague; they can use one particular campaign as a case study of evidence to form their entry or can use aspects from various projects, but all work must have taken place within the eligibility period and must show evidence against each of the specific category criteria.
