Celebrating the very best in branding produced around the world, the sixth annual Brand Impact Awards is now open for entries, with the London-based ceremony taking place this September.
Presented by Computer Arts magazine and Creative Bloq, the Brand Impact Awards have a fluid, celebratory and colourful new look this year, as the result of a collaboration with the ‘code poet’ Zach Lieberman.
There’s plenty of time to enter your best branding work, with the deadline for entries end of play 31 May 2019 – but submit before 28 March and you’ll get an early-bird rate on ticket prices to the September event.
If you missed last year’s celebrations, here’s a brief look at the awards (and drinks) that were dished out!
Who should enter the Brand Impact Awards?
Entries are welcome from design studios, consultancies, branding agencies, ad agencies, in-house design teams and brand owners, and work can be branding programmes and branded campaigns commissioned nationally or internationally.
It doesn’t matter if the work comes from a massive agency or a small studio, just as long as it catches the eyes of the judges.
How are the BIAs judged?
Entries are 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.
And lastly, campaigns that extend or enhance existing brands are accepted, unlike with many other award schemes.
