Best Campaign of the Year

The award for Best Campaign of the Year will recognise a marketing, PR and/or advertising campaign that is world-class, successful and meets the company’s business and strategic objectives.

The judges will consider how the campaign used business insights or intelligence to demonstrate an understanding of long-term business objectives, the means by which the campaign was executed, how the target audience was reached and what the resulting engagement was.

Entries will be judged on supporting information including how effectively the activity was tailored to an identified business need or target audience. In addition, companies need to provide specific performance metrics (if applicable), details of any measurable RoI, evidence of increased brand awareness or change in brand/product perceptions, increased engagement, evidence that the campaign’s success criteria were met or exceeded, and any evidence showing how the campaign added value to the business.

The award is open to both large and small budget campaigns. The campaign can be a one-off activity, part of a longer-term strategy, a product launch, brand awareness campaign or any other activity that has set out to achieve specific objectives. Companies may enter directly, or marketing/PR agencies may enter a campaign on behalf of a client.

Supporting files and statements:

Supporting material:
Uploading supporting material is optional and at your own discretion. As a minimum, we recommend uploading images and, if appropriate, financial figures to strengthen your submitted statements. Judges are not required to score supporting material but can use supporting material as evidence to support a claim. For this reason please ensure all important statements are included in the main body of your awards submission - do not rely on the supporting materials section alone to evidence your entry. Please upload all materials as a zipped file.


Customer testimonials:
You should obtain your testimonials from clients, partners and industry figures, rather than employees of your organisation. There is no word limit for this information, so please provide multiple, in depth statements to strengthen your application.


Video link:
If a picture’s worth a thousand words, think what a video can do! This is not mandatory but where applicable we strongly recommend providing a video link to show the judges a visual of your entry.


100-word award summary:
Should your entry be shortlisted, this summary will be published in the Elektra Awards Event Guide and shared in our marketing activity. Please ensure it is written in the third person. For example: ‘Company X’s award shows innovation and resourcefulness…’ Rather than ‘Our award shows innovation and resourcefulness.’ You will not have an opportunity to review or amend the summary, so please ensure it is correct and accurate before you submit it.


Company logo:
This should be supplied in colour as a vector eps file. We recommend a dpi of at least 300. If your entry is successful, we will use this logo to promote you as a finalist on our website.
