NB: The judges often ask for evidence of how the goals were met. The best entries include the ROI and ROO. Statistical data can be included in the supporting materials.
The most successful entries relate their results back to the original objectives.
Please include a selection of supporting materials that strengthen your entry by providing evidence of your achievements. Materials should illustrate your work and aid the narrative of your entry statement. It’s best to include only those materials that are directly relevant to the specific category. All supporting materials should be included in your single PDF entry document (max 10MB).
Supporting materials may be included to help the judges evaluate your entry. These may include:
- images illustrating the project or campaign
- press coverage (up to five examples)
- social coverage (up to five examples)
- videos are permitted as supporting evidence for your entry. If possible, please provide a link to view the video content online (YouTube, Vimeo, embedded on the organization's site). Please note, videos in the excess length of three minutes may not be viewed in their entirety.
- statistics: any relevant statistics (optional)
- client feedback
- additional information about your entry, organization, project credits or third-party organizations that contributed
*Although including supporting material is not compulsory, if it is included effectively it can make the merits of the entry more immediately apparent to the judging panel.
NB: Videos can be more than three minutes long if submitting for the best use of online video or best corporate viral campaign. We do not accept video files so please provide links and log in details if necessary. Please also ensure that there isn’t an expiration date on the video link.
