Who should enter the Brand Impact Awards?
Entries to the Brand Impact Awards 2022 are welcome from design studios, consultancies, branding agencies, ad agencies, in-house design teams and brand owners. Entrants can submit projects and branded campaigns that were commissioned nationally or internationally. And unlike many award schemes, campaigns that extend or enhance existing brands are also accepted.
It doesn’t matter if you're a massive agency or a small studio, just as long as the work impresses the judges with its creativity and consistency. The BIAs has long attracted the best talent in the design world. They offer major industry recognition and extensive PR coverage among a wide audience of digital and print creatives, with the guarantee of bespoke marketing collateral.
Categories include Craft awards in Copywriting, Illustration and Typography and Motion, and there are sector-specific categories covering almost any branding campaign possible, from Artisan and Automotive to Utilities and Wine, Beer and Spirits. Self-Branding and Artisan. As ever the BIAs 2022 will also be giving two special awards: Social Impact and Best of Show. This gives you a huge range of entry points for different branding work.
How are the BIAs judged?
The Brand Impact Awards 2022 will be judged by a panel of 33 experts (opens in new tab) featuring names from major creative agencies, such as DesignStudio, COLLINS, Johnson Banks and Pearlfisher, branding experts who've worked client-side for top brands such as Disney, Mailchimp, Virgin and Ben & Jerry's and our very own acting editor, Rosie Hilder.
Entries will be judged on their originality, how well they serve their original brief and consistency – specifically consistent quality of idea and execution across two or more brand touchpoints. They are also judged in context of their market sector – product design is not lumped in with sports, just as self-branding is judged exclusively from fashion.
