Five reasons to enter Annual 2019

Published by

There’s less than a month left to enter this year’s Creativepool Annual and as 2019 gets into gear, it's time to start preparing your submissions for this year’s book.

*

Now in it’s sixth edition, the Annual offers a collection of the best campaigns, brands, agencies, influencers and newcomers from the past year and showcases the work far and wide. Here are five key reasons to get involved…

1. Exposure

The Annual is judged by panel of key industry figures including at least one brand representative, putting your work in the hands of potential clients. Each panel is carefully constructed to have an international presence ensuring global exposure and perspective for your work.

*

2. Recognition

Last year we reached out to over 500,000 creative industry professionals and produced 5,000 Annuals that were distributed across the globe landing on the desks of CMOs and the world’s top agencies.

*

3. Celebration

The Annual Launch Party takes place on 9 May when the winners and shortlisted entrants will be presented with their books. There'll be plenty of partying into the night and also a chance to network with clients, agency peers and key members of the Creativepool community.

4. Reward

All winning work is included in the winners’ trophy hardback Annuals as well as the 5,000 softcover versions which are distributed globally to brands and agencies. All Shortlisted entrants are also listed in each Annual.

All winners receive a three-month free Pro account on Creativepool, an exclusive Gold, Silver, Bronze or this year’s coloured (for People’s Choice) Annual with the winner’s 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 increase your overall visibility score for clients.

*

5. Shared

We are the only creative awards to include a People’s Choice whereby individuals can vote on their favourite pieces. Run separately to the judging panels it activates each person and agency involved in spreading the word.

*

The deadline for Annual 2019 submissions is 1 February 2019. View the entry pack and submit here.
