New York Festivals hosted the first advertising competitions to ban “Scam Ads”— ads that were
never published, or were published without the full knowledge and consent of the advertiser. Our SPAM GUARD system, the oldest and strongest policy in the industry, encourages jury members to anonymously flag suspicious ads and include comments in support of their suspicions. Every flagged entry is investigated; should the evidence prove the ad to be a scam, the entry will be disqualified and the people listed in the credits of the entering company will be barred from entering our competitions.
The “Other” category is provided to the entrant for any entries that do not fit into any of the existing categories. Upon review, New York Festivals’ Global Awards will submit the entry into the most appropriate category.
All copies of entries submitted become the property of International Awards Group, LLC, and its affiliated awards companies, AME Awards®, The Global Awards®, Midas Awards® and the New York Festivals®, (hereafter collectively referred to as IAG), for supplemental presentations to educational institutions, trade groups, advertising professionals and the public generally and will not be returned.
Entrant specifically grants worldwide, royalty-free permission to IAG to play or show the entries at award presentations, at IAG’s sponsored screenings around the world or in any other public or private presentation with or without charge whenever and as often as IAG and its representatives see fit without any compensation to Entrant. Entrant authorizes IAG the use for such purpose of any trademarks, animated characters, animals, and merchandised items included in the entries. IAG may use entries or license entries or the reproduction of entries in perpetuity, without payment to Entrant or Entrants clients, non-exclusively throughout the world, for use in telecasts, broadcasts, videotapes, Internet, DVDs, exhibits, annuals and any other publications including without limitation, television, radio or Internet presentations featuring the IAG winners.
Entrant holds or will secure the necessary license for use of all music embodied within the entries. Entrant will fully defend, indemnify and hold IAG, its affiliated companies, assignees and licensees harmless from any talent or other residual charges due to the release of its entries or any third party claims against IAG, its affiliated companies, assignees and licensees resulting from the content of the entries and the intellectual property contained therein. The person submitting entry or entries certifies that he or she has full authority to approve the rights granted herein.

This year, the Global Awards Executive Jury will meet after our Grand Jury and Live Juries around the globe determine a Shortlist. Being Shortlisted is no longer a guaranteed Finalist designation. In mid-October, after the Grand Juries have determined a Shortlist, our Executive Jury will be responsible for awarding Gold, Silver, Bronze, as well as Finalist designations. Global Awards Winners will receive a Global Award. And Finalists will receive a certificate for each shortlisted entry. Good luck!
Press releases will be sent to international wire services and to the trades. All winners will be published on our website and showcased through our social channels.
Global Awards Network of the Year will be awarded to an advertising agency network that earns
the highest score for entries in all mediums across all competitions. For consideration to be part of a Network, the company concerned must be wholly, or majority owned by a network, or associated with a network group through naming and/or branding.
Global Awards Agency of the Year will be awarded to an advertising agency that earns the highest score for entries in all mediums across all competitions
Once in a while, an idea comes along that stands far above the rest. Determined by the Executive Jury from top-scoring winners, the Grand Award(s) will be awarded to the entry or entries that possess creativity, innovation, and exceptionally effective communication deserving of this special recognition.
We are the Global Awards, so this year we’ll be awarding ve Global regional winners as well: North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa.
GLOBAL GOOD AWARD
Our Executive Jury will be awarding a very special entry submitted on behalf of NGOs or Non-Pro ts with our Global Good designation. Awarding the Global Good is at the discretion of the Executive Jury and will have to be a Global Gold winning award, a highly effective entry or campaign.
Some Discipline Groups offer an “Other” option - if you are unsure of which category to enter, choose “Other” and include a brief explanation. The Global Awards Processing Team will be happy to help place it in the appropriate category.
Entries will be evaluated and judged for their intrinsic merits – without comparison to other entries in the same category. Each entry is in competition with itself and is measured by our international award-winning jury using an industry-accepted standard of excellence. The number of entries in a category has no bearing on how each entry is scored by the jury.
Please explore Descriptions and Definitions for more information on Categories.
Single medium campaign entries may include up to three pieces (e.g. 3 print ads, or 3 online ads, or 3 radio spots). Single medium campaigns which include collateral/physical items (e.g. brochures, direct mail and calendars) must be mailed as hard (physical) copies.
Integrated (mixed media) campaigns may include no more than a total of six pieces (e.g. 2 print ads, 1 website, 1 outdoor ad, and 2 TV spots.) Only one entry form is required per campaign, but all pieces must be clearly labeled.
At our judges’ request, all integrated campaigns should be submitted as a digital presentation incorporating the campaign brief and goals, various creative elements, and any direct results attributable to the success of the campaign. This presentation may be a PDF or case video summary (.mov). Case videos must not be longer than 2 minutes.
Integrated campaigns which include physical items (e.g. brochures, direct mail, calendars, etc.) in addition to digital components can be mailed as hard copies, on CD and DVD.
If your entry is not in English, you MUST provide a translation in the space provided on the online entry forms. The translation must include major headlines and titles. Offline translations and synopses may be emailed to our processing team at firstname.lastname@example.org
No offline paper printouts of your translation or synopsis will be accepted. We recommend that you subtitle all video entries in English.
While healthcare is a global issue, governments, local laws, and regulatory bodies play important roles in effective healthcare communication. In addition, culture, languages, and other traditions are equally as important when it comes to context of a particular entry or campaign.
To ensure that each Global entry is evaluated properly, the judges request all entrants provide a short summary of the framework in which the entry was prepared and published. This summary should cover key variables such as the audience, concept, marketing objectives and particular execution, and healthcare environment - and can include explanations of cultural nuances, word plays, graphic references, etc. It must not exceed 500 words in length and should be entered in the space provided on the online entry forms. With the exception of self-promo entries or campaigns, please don’t include your company name or any companies that took part in the entry.
When submitting your credits, be aware that if your entry becomes a winner, only the name of the entering company, name of the brand/client, and title of the entry will appear on the trophy. There is a limit of 40 characters, including spacing, per each credit line for entering company, brand/client, and title of entry. Certificates additionally list ten names with corresponding job titles. There is a limit of 60 characters, including spacing, per each name and job title credit line. Additional names with job titles can be listed in the showcase section of our website. You may use any title you wish for the people involved in the creation of the work.
You must enter at least one additional talent credit and title in order to continue with the entry process. We suggest that you enter all of your credits as you’d like them before proceeding to checkout。
An individual form must be filled out for each entry or campaign. A printable record of the total for all your entries will be automatically generated at checkout, and emailed to the entrant. This record will include an invoice for the total amount due and shipping instructions, along with any necessary entry item ID labels. Be sure to enter information for all your entries before proceeding to checkout.
