2021 Effie Awards Deadline Extended to 25th June
We know many of you are working hard to finalise your Effie Awards entries ahead of the deadline approaching on 18th June.
Due to the amount of requests we’ve received for additional time, we are pleased to share that we are extending the final deadline to 25th June, giving you an extra week to submit your entries.
The past year has presented extreme circumstances for all of us, effectiveness for some was survival, for others it was managing growth. Both scenarios are potentially equally award-worthy. If we could give you one tip for entering the 2021 competition, it’d be to outline what particular circumstances you were facing, how your competition responded, and why your activity drove effectiveness more powerfully.

WATCH: Effie UK presents 'Bounce Forward,' part of the Ideas That Work Summit Series
The Effie UK Bounce Forward Summit on 13th May featured two 30-minute discussion panels.
The first session ‘What have we learnt?’ explored the key learnings all marketers should be aware of as we begin to emerge out of the crisis.
- Cristina Diezhandino, Chief Marketing Officer, Diageo
- Danielle Hawley, Global Executive Creative Director, Uber
- Khartoon Weiss, Head of Global Agency & Accounts, TikTok
Session moderated by Stephen Lepitak, UK Bureau Chief, Adweek.
Whilst 'How do we want to be?' discussed practical ways to smash norms and stereotypes within out teams, our thinking and our output.
- Asad Dhunna, Founder & CEO, The Unmistakables
- Tanja Grubner, Global Marketing & Communications Director, Feminine Care, Essity
- Steven Lacey, Founder, The Outsiders
Session moderated by Nicola Kemp, Editorial Director, Creativebrief.
A common theme emerged from both panels: the need to operate with intention and have the next level of conversation with ourselves and our customers. To strip away artifice, embrace realness and get to the inner workings of culture. To move away from stereotypes and tropes. And to acknowledge that when you take a stand, not everyone will like it. Embrace the lovers, not the haters was the perfect closing thought.
