The Process


Nominations are open to all. You can nominate any company or person that you like (including your own/yourself).


Once the submissions have been collated, Creativepool will produce a shortlist in conjunction with the applicable judging individuals. The shortlist will be passed on to our judging panels who will join together to look through your submission.

People's Choice

The Annual is the only creative awards that has a People's Choice element to it. This is completely separate to the judges vote and the voting/scores for one does not influence the other. In the People's Choice portion of the awards entrants are encouraged to get their networks to vote for their submissions. This is not mandatory but is an exciting way for entrants to be able to celebrate that they have been shortlisted for the award and engages people from across the global creative community to come and see the work on offer. People can vote in as many categories as they wish but can vote only once in each category and for each person/company.

All of those that make the shortlist are invited to join us at Banking Hall for the Annual Launch Party, an awards ceremony like no other!

Winner Benefits

All winning work is included in the winners trophy hardback Annuals as well as included in the 5,000 softcover versions that are distributed globally to brands and agencies.

All winners receive a 12 month free Pro Account on Creativepool and an exclusive Gold, or this years coloured (for people's choice) Annual with the winners name and category on the front. A winning or shortlist badge is placed on your profile that will help you get more easily found in search and will increase your overall visibility score for clients.
