What to Enter

All submissions must include the following:

· Short Case Study*(max 500 words), with the exception of the Music Video category ONLY.
This should be a short description of your project to give the judges further information and should include:-
1) The brief
2) The creative idea
3) Evidence of how the idea was received by the target audience e.g. number of views, increase in visitors.

· Digital Supporting Material (preferred file formats: Jpeg, Tif, Bmp; for moving images please provide them as Mov files using the H264 codec or as Mp4 files.) If you are sending CD/USBs please ensure your work is saved in a cross-platform format to allow the material to be viewed on all UK equipment. Please also ensure all files may be extracted from the CD/USB for judging purposes.

· Physical Samples of entries where appropriate (please see category-specific requirements on the Guidance for Entrants attachment)

*This can be in the form of a video. The information provided will be used not only for the judging process but, for each selected entry, to create a case study. These will feature in an online database which be promoted to the readership of Marketing Week - putting selected entrants' work in front of a huge new audience of over 130,000 marketing professionals.

What to Enter
Work submitted into The Annual is not judged by category. However, to ensure your work is seen by the right panel, as part of the entry process you will be required to select the category which your work best fits.

Please see the attached Guidance for entrants for further detail on category explanations and suggested supporting material.

‘Other’ Design and ‘Other’ Advertising
If you have a project that does not fit comfortably into any of the fields listed on the Entry Information page, please select the appropriate “Other” category when asked to define your work during the entry process and we will ensure that it goes before the correct jury.
