Global Multi Region Program Update

The Global Multi-Region Effie Awards were established in 2004 to honor the most effective marketing efforts that run across multiple regions worldwide.   Efforts entered must demonstrate effectiveness in global marketing in at least four countries across two or more worldwide regions.   

Given the high degree of challenge of the competition and to further enable global entrants to demonstrate their effectiveness across multiple regions, Effie Worldwide will update the timing of the Global Multi-Region program to biennial. The next competition will launch in 2024 and will allow for a more robust and comprehensive competition.  

The next competition will open in March 2024 with an eligibility period from January 1st, 2020-December 31st, 2023. Participating brands and agencies will have the opportunity to earn points in the 2024 Effie Index for each market entered as part of the Global Multi-Region campaign.
