Please be aware that we do not accept direct file uploads through the submission form for security reasons.

It is important to ensure that the links remain accessible and active until the winners’ announcement. This will allow you to showcase your work more effectively and provide our judges with a comprehensive understanding. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
You have the flexibility to select the most suitable category or categories for your entry. We provide five primary categories: Websites, Advertising & Marketing, Apps & Mobile, Social Media, and Video & Podcast.
Ultimately, the decision of which category to choose rests with you, enabling you to present your work in the most appropriate context within our competition. We strongly encourage you to carefully consider and select the category that best accentuates the strengths and distinctiveness of your submission.
We highly encourage participants to submit their entries in multiple relevant categories to maximize their chances of winning an award. As entries have the potential to excel in multiple categories, this approach enhances the opportunity for success. It is important to note that our esteemed judges retain the right to reassign entries to different categories if it becomes evident that a different category would be a more suitable fit.
We gladly accept entries in multiple languages. Here’s how we handle entries across different categories:
Website: If your website has an English version, we highly recommend providing it. For foreign language websites evaluated by English-speaking judges, we will make use of online translation services.
Advertising & Marketing: For entries in languages other than English, we suggest including an English translation or explanation within your brief, case study, or other relevant materials. This will ensure clarity and understanding across our judges.
Video & Podcast: To ensure the optimal evaluation process for non-English video and podcast content, kindly consider options such as dubbing, adding English subtitles, or providing English transcriptions. This enables broader accessibility and enhances content comprehension.
Social Media: If an English version of your social media account exists, it is advisable to include that. In case English-speaking judges review foreign language social media entries, we may utilize online translation services or rely on the native translation features provided by the platforms.
Apps & Mobile: If you have an English version of your app, we strongly recommend submitting it. In situations where English-speaking judges review foreign language mobile sites, we may utilize online translation services.
Our goal is to accommodate entries in different languages and ensure a fair evaluation process for all submissions. If you have any questions or concerns regarding non-English entries, please don’t hesitate to contact us at email@example.com.
