From websites to AI, apps to mobile, the digital communications category recognises excellence in all things, well, digital.

The judges are looking for work that pushes the expectations of digital advertising. The stuff that demonstrates creative innovation in the medium. And the work that begs to be engaged. Work that interrupts news feeds, browsing and second screening. We see literally thousands of digital executions every day. Judges will award the ones that stop them and make them watch, engage, click like and remember.

Direct marketing is work designed to provoke a direct action from a specific, targeted audience. Whether digital, retail or traditional DM mailing, direct is more than an invitation to visit a website. It’s an invitation to respond in a more active way.

Judges will be looking for work that pushed the boundaries of response-driven creativity, demonstrating innovation in the category. We live in an age of direct personalisation. Entries will need to show how data and insights were used to clearly define and precisely target and engage the demographic.

Experiential is exactly what it says. It’s a connection experienced between brand and consumer. This can take many forms, but is defined as utilising physical spaces to do so. Experiential is where the consumer interacts with a brand with touch, taste, smell, seeing and hearing.

The judges are looking for next level brand experiences that offer genuine moments of connection. Entries should show how every touch point of the experience created engagement and brand affinity.

The integrated category rewards campaigns that demonstrate excellent use of multiple channels to create a cohesive and creative brand idea. Each channel should have a purpose and should clearly demonstrate how it adds to the campaign’s objectives.
Judges will examine how the idea is enhanced in each of the channels, not just repeated. Each channel should play a role to justify the expenditure.

Retail forms the backbone of our economy and is a huge part of the way we live. This year in particular the retail industry has been radically affected by the Covid pandemic and the way we’ve had to go to market has radically changed with it. 

In this category we’ll be celebrating retail innovation, technology, customer experience and digital commerce to name a few but above all judges will be looking for creativity through all levels of strategy, concept and execution.
